Let's build together the Village of 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.

Learning with others

The OIEC is pleased to be able to share with you this new book: “Learning from others: BUILDING THE TERRITORY’S EDUCATIONAL PACT. The experience of the Norte de Santander region (Colombia)”, which we coordinated and published.

In response to Pope Francis’ invitation to build together a global pact for education, thisbook offers clear guidelines to help weave the educational pact from the territory (village, neighborhood, city or region). Involve and mobilize the various educational and social sectors to generate this local alliance with a global opening.

Laudate deum

On Wednesday 4 October, Pope Francis published a new apostolic exhortation on ecology, “Laudate Deum”, eight years after his encyclical “Laudato si'”. A few months ahead of COP 28, he renews his cry for the safeguarding of Creation and launches an appeal to Christians, leaders and “all people of good will on the climate crisis”.


To encourage educational communities to discuss this exhortation by Pope Francis, the OIEC has put together an exhibition of 16 panels presenting carefully selected passages from the encyclical, illustrated with photos.
