Changes in political, technological, social and economic
realities since the early 21st century have led to more
relationships between people of different nations.
Educational changes which result from policy decisions also
had an impact on Language Learning and Teaching.

The heart of peace and global education is enabling people
to participate in shaping a better, shared future for the
world. The emphasis is on the unity and interdependence of
human society, on developing a sense of self and
appreciation of cultural diversity, affirmation of social
justice and human rights, as well as acting for a
sustainable future in different times and places.

Through language education we might promote positive values
and assist students to take responsibility for their actions
in order to see themselves as global citizens who can
contribute to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world.

Olivier Mentz is President of the
