The World We Share is Changing

We need all children to be ready for their future – and able to shape it. Our education system requires an upgrade so it can equip tomorrow’s adults to thrive in a changing world.

Our Shared World supports SDG4.7 which states that by 2030 we ‘ensure all learners acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including among others through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship, and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development’

Our Shared World Mission

Our Vision

By 2030, the Education community in England ensures every learner receives an education that equips them to contribute to a just, sustainable, peaceful and resilient world through the realisation of SDG 4.7.
