The World Campaign for Education has today accompanied the #FridayForFuture youth movement in Madrid

In the positioning published on their website, they fundamentally defend the enormous power of education to save the planet from degradation, both socially and environmentally.

Therefore, from 1 to 7 April the CME will celebrate the Week of Global Action for Education (SAME) in more than 30 Spanish cities under the slogan "We defend education, we sustain the world".

World Campaign for Education, March 15, 2019. The Spanish Coalition of the World Campaign for Education (CME) has accompanied today in Madrid dozens of youth groups that under the name "Youth for Climate" have joined the youth mobilization encouraged by the young Swedish Greta Thunberg #FridaysForFuture.

This action has been held at the same time in more than 2052 cities in 123 countries.

Cristina Álvarez, coordinator of the Spanish Coalition of the World Campaign for Education (led in Spain by Ayuda en Acción, Educo, Entreculturas and Plan International Spain) has reiterated "our support to this movement of young conscious and critical people who are exercising their right to participate and to express their opinions as political actors, as Greta has repeated on multiple occasions, "power belongs to the people." We share with them that the climate crisis must be addressed more seriously and above all with urgency. "

In this sense, CME fundamentally defends the enormous power of education to save the planet from degradation, both socially and environmentally.

On the one hand, education helps people understand environmental problems, give them a response and reduce their vulnerability to its effects.

For example, universalizing secondary education by 2030 would prevent 200,000 deaths caused by natural disasters in the next twenty years.

On the other hand, education is the best tool to train citizens aware of the causes and consequences of climate change and other environmental problems, thus contributing to modify the unsustainable economic model that has led us to the spiral of social and environmental destruction in which we are immersed.

For this reason, this year, from 1 to 7 April, the CME calls on all citizens to celebrate to celebrate the Week of Global Action for Education (SAME) in which, under the slogan "We defend education, we sustain the world".

In Spain, there will be acts of mobilization in more than 30 cities, where it is expected, the participation of more than 40,000 people, who will build scrabbles of sustainability in squares and schools throughout the country.

Throughout the year, more than 200 educational centers and non-formal education groups have been working on teaching materials on education, sustainability and the 2030 Agenda, and they will be in charge of promoting different acts of protest.

There are many ways to join the SAME.

In the web page the different proposals will be published and in social networks, the different actions will be disseminated under the hashtags # SAME2019 #SostenemosElMundo.

If you want to follow live the day of the young people in the #FridayForFuture, do not miss the social networks of the CME Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
