IVECA is focused on implementing the new goals for sustainable development adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015. Since 2009 IVECA has been striving to provide Quality Education through global partnerships (SDG 4 and 17).
Our program brings 21st century learning to students across the World through partnerships among schools. Each educational entity receives a specially tailored curriculum that meets their local needs, academic goals underlined by the global perspective of intercultural competence and the Sustainable Development Goals.
The virtual exchange provides a safe environment to discuss and learn about possible solutions for several world issues such as climate change, clean energy, good health and others. Learning collaboratively is powerful, teachers in a developing nation, closer to the “frontline” of sustainability issues are able to mentor and create empathy with their first world counterparts that are often insulated from the stark realities of poor development choices.
To promote the formation of future leaders of our society, it is critical to create interactions with different cultures and exposure to the Sustainable Development Goals. If we provide a quality education today we will have better leaders tomorrow. IVECA is proud of being an organization that is committed to achieving the agenda of 2030. You can be part of it too.
