In our world the global dimension has been added to everyone´s life. We are part of the emerging world community with the ability to think and act as global citizens. Throughout the IBVM world- wide network we are engaged in formal and non formal education of girls and boys, young women and men as global citizens. It goes beyond simply knowing that we are citizens of the globe to an acknowledgement of our responsibilities both to each other and to the Earth itself. We recognize the need to tackle injustice and inequality, and we aim at working actively to do so. We value the Earth as precious and unique, and work to safeguard the future for those coming after us.
