"From the Common Home to the Common Mission: Build together the Village of Education!"
Every three or four years the OIEC organizes a gathering of Catholic education leaders from all over the world. During the Congress, delegates commit the OIEC to strong orientations for Catholic education, in line with the message of Pope Francis, and the universal Church.

It is an opportunity to think together about the new educational paths, the promise of a humanization of the world.

OIEC IS COMMITTED TO THE GLOBAL COMPACT ON EDUCATION

Never before has there been such need to unite our efforts in a broad educational alliance, to form mature individuals capable of overcoming division and antagonism, and to restore the fabric of relationships for the sake of a more fraternal humanity.

MESSAGE OF POPE FRANCIS

OIEC is an international Catholic organization with the following aims:

OIEC Statutes. Art. 3

OUR PROJECTS

Pope Francis has invited us on several occasions to build the Global Educational Compact (GEC). The OIEC, in response to this call, together with the Education Commission of the UISG-USG, and with the support and in coordination with the Congregation for Catholic Education (CEC), has developed a roadmap with 5 concrete actions, which each institution can contextualize and adapt.

The aim of the “PLANET FRATERNITY” project is to create a platform of digital resources for English teachers and their students, allowing them to find effective teaching tools to support the work of teaching the English language. The editorial line of the resources that will be offered on this platform is to disseminate to students of Catholic schools around the world information, ideas, topics for reflection, etc., inspired by the Encyclicals Laudato Si’ and Fratelli Tutti. 

The project “I CAN!“ encourages teachers and Catholic schools all over the world to set up projects in their classrooms, where children take the lead and offer solutions to improve their lives, their social and environmental contexts. It is about creating together a project or a story of change, that respond to the challenges of the Encyclical Laudato Si’ and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
