In May 2020 the Global Compact on Education should have taken place: the Pact promoted by Pope Francis to generate, through education, a change of mindset on a global scale.

The pandemic, which forced the event to be canceled, made the Holy Father’s appeal even more pressing: it is necessary to unite efforts for our common home, so that education may be a creator of brotherhood, peace, and justice.

For this reason, on October 15, 2020, at 2.30 pm (GMT+2), there will be a virtual meeting, open to all and live on the channel, during which a video message from Pope Francis will be broadcast, together with testimonies and international experiences, so as to look further with creativity.

The event is organized by the Congregation for Catholic Education, referred to by 216 thousand Catholic schools, attended by over 60 million pupils, and 1,750 Catholic universities, with over 11 million students.
