Children entering education today will graduate as young adults in 2030. Our mission is to prepare them for jobs that have not yet been created, for technologies that have not yet been invented, and to teach them how to solve problems that have not yet been anticipated. We must encourage our young people to embrace and shape their own futures and to understand that they form part of a global community and are capable of shaping the world.
Agora International School Barcelona, and the Globeducate group as a whole, is committed to the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. As part of this commitment, we have entered into partnerships with international organisations such as the Eco-schools Project and WWF (World Wildlife Fund), participating in global schools’ projects that involve students, teachers and parents, and bringing together a worldwide community of more than 100,000 people.
Every year Globeducate organises a series of international events in which students drawn from all of Globeducate’s schools worldwide come together to share their knowledge and skills, exchange ideas, participate in healthy competition and build friendships. The events embrace sporting, academic, musical and artistic competitions, leadership and debating forums, and a UN simulation, in which students represent delegates from different countries and discuss global issues in English.
Agora International School Barcelona engages with social, ethical and educational projects at both an international and local level. In addition to the events and projects mentioned above, and our membership of the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), the school is also a member of the International Schools Association (ISA), the oldest international education organisation in the world. Locally, the school belongs to associations such as CICAE, and our students support a number of local charities and NGOs, such as Banco de Alimentos de Sant Esteve Sesrovires, a local food bank, or CRIS Contra el Cáncer, a not-for-profit organisation which promotes research in the fight against cancer.
Our aim is to ensure that our students are committed to making the world a better place for everyone to live in, preparing them to embrace the great challenges of our time, and equipping them with range of skills and competences that go beyond academic success. By encouraging a multilingual and international approach, our students become more aware of the world around them and learn to appreciate other cultures and points of view. Our mission is to educate young people who are committed, empathetic, respectful and responsible, and who are well prepared to build a better world based upon mutual understanding and intercultural respect.
