Organizational History/Mission

The Center for Global Education at Asia Society brings together leaders and institutions from around the world to tackle one of the most critical education challenges today: how to educate all students for employability and citizenship in a global era. We are working to achieve UN SDG target 4.7 on Global Citizenship Education.

The Center for Global Education (CGE) strongly believes in the power of cross-sector dialogue to shift policy and practice on global education issues. The Center will transform education to prepare young people for a global 21st century by bringing together the most influential educators, businesses, and government officials; commissioning research and publishing insights; and partnering with schools and education systems to change policy and practice.

Our vision is that in an interconnected global era, all youth from all countries and cultures will have the capacity to create, participate in, and benefit from a peaceful and prosperous world.

Our mission is to develop global competence in students, young leaders, and educators as the foundation for understanding between people in the Asia Pacific region and throughout the world.

We accomplish this through a variety of initiatives, professional development offerings, partnerships, and resources, and we work with educators, school districts, parents, and communities to ensure that they have the tools and support they need to globalize learning and better prepare young people for our global future.
