Vía Educación generates opportunities for sustainable social and democratic development through the design, implementation, evaluation and dissemination of successful citizenship education strategies in formal and non-formal spaces. We work with schools and education authorities on teachers’ professional development initiatives, as well as with communities on initiatives that harness their potential to organize, participate, and work collectively to transform the places where they live, learn and work.
Most of the social challenges that our world faces today are multidimensional, and require the concerted effort of inviduals and groups that know how to participate and coexist peacefully. Via Educación facilitates opportunities for schools, communities, businesses, governement and civil society organizations to develop and practice these skills. Our ultimate goal is to build a culture of democratic civic participation that translate into better life opportunities for all citizens.
