There is literally NO time to waste – NOR water.
The Pontifical Foundation Scholas Occurrentes is a global educational organization founded with the blessing of Pope Francis.
It is present on the five continents and through its network integrates half a million of educational institutions. Its mission is to respond to the call to create the Culture of Encounter, bringing together young people in an education that generates Meaning.
Scholas’ programs bring together young people and children from public and private schools, with different social, cultural and religious backgrounds and mainly art, sports and technologies are its educational languages. These are transversal to the most part of Scholas’ activities and projects, they are the tools through which children have the possibility to fully express themselves.
As part of its framework, Scholas has also a strong approach to Universities. “Scholas Chairs” constitutes a space for reflection and action connecting a large network where every individual (professors, researchers, students) is enriched by the encounter with others, through links that develop between the different universities, schools and projects of Scholas. Its purposes are to disseminate ideas and pedagogic proposals among the different realities of countries and continents, develop synergies among universities, involve students in this research and generate activities in the service of the community.
Scholas is, in the end, a global movement of a wall-less huge classroom, convinced that through education we can create a new world.
