Why We Need an Alliance for International Education
If you are visiting this site then you already know why we need international education. But why do we need an Alliance?
No matter how we define it in our local contexts, we share the belief and commitment that young people have a right to and a need for international learning - and so do the societies in which they live. In a world which is more inter-connected than ever before and which faces challenges of higher global relevance than ever before, we can’t afford to let our young people and our societies move into the future without understanding that we are all in this together.
There are many individuals, schools, systems and associations around the world already working to this end. But often they operate in relative isolation in their own countries, sectors or educational niches. That is why we need an Alliance which can provide a dynamic forum which brings them together, enabling them to promote their ideas and services to a wider audience and to obtain mutual benefits from sharing and exploring how collaboration can enhance our common goal.
Whatever your involvement in this momentous project, we hope you’ll join our forum to share your unique contributions and learn from colleagues around the world. The Alliance for International Education exists only to help you carry out your own project as successfully as possible. The more diverse they are, the more interesting are the prospects that others can benefit from learning about them, and those who ultimately benefit will be those who matter most, young people who will forge the societies of the future.
