SPAS supports GCE. The Office of Catholic International Education (OIEC), in a letter dated March 19, 2021, invited us to insert the official logo of the Global Compact on Education together with the logo of the school, both on printed materials and on the web, social networks, etc., in response to the call from Pope Francis to build together the Global Compact on Education.
We, as a catholic institution, have responded by incorporating in our letterhead, printed materials, web page, face book page the GCE logo. It is a significant logo to express the invitation of Pope Francis to involve everyone in the "Global Compact on Education".
The colors are green, blue, gold. Then, the stylized drawing of a world, embraced by a human figure.
The challenge is to be able to communicate the values, roots and purpose of the Global Compact on Education, so...
Green is used because it recalls nature, growth, renewal and also hope, the possibility of "sowing" prophetic dreams.
The blue is used to remind us of our spiritual dimension, and also what we would like to contribute to achieving: Peace.
Then, a golden brushstroke, to represent the light, the sacred. For every covenant, every covenant for the common good, for the good of humanity, has something sacred in it.
Then there are the forms. At the center of the world, there is the human person who carries out an action of care and protection of the world, of the Common House that has been entrusted to him.
The line of the circle symbolizes that macrocosm that is God, and expresses the beginning and the end of everything: being, totality.
Pope Francis proposed transforming education into a “creator of fraternity, peace and justice.” According to him, “The goal of this educational investment, grounded in a network of humane and open relationships, is to ensure that everyone has access to a quality education consonant with the dignity of the human person and our common vocation to fraternity.”
The pope offered seven key points for the future of education. These were 1) respecting human dignity; 2) listening to young people; 3) promoting women's education; 4) recognizing the importance of the family in education; 5) including the vulnerable and marginalized; 6) finding new ways of understanding the economy and politics; and 7) protecting the environment.
