Education

To bring the concept of an Alliance of Civilizations to practical fulfillment, education must be addressed at multiple levels.

The most obvious aspect of education that must be considered are those efforts that replace ignorance of the Other with knowledge of the Other, promoting understanding and tolerance in place of misunderstanding and intolerance.

Concerning relations between the predominantly Muslim societies and Western countries, education is a key component of many of the themes that the Alliance seeks to advance, including positive youth engagement, the development of responsible and constructive media, the integration of diverse populations, and the effective interaction of contemporary societies.

The complexity and connectedness of modern life requires a holistic attitude toward knowledge and awareness of the significance, dignity and responsibility of each individual in the overall context of humanity. It also requires educational security, in which regional, class, gender and age equity in educational opportunity become vital goals to promote constructive social engagement over violence. In an increasingly inter-connected world, education for all is not only a vital objective, but also one that should be within reach.
