The 25th September 2015, the General Assembly of the United Nations approved the 2030 Agenda with the objective of eradicating poverty, fighting against inequality and injustice, and combating climate change among other purposes. This agenda, together with other agreements such as the Paris Accords, set up the route to pursue a common global goal: sustainable world development.
The 2030 agenda is based on the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. With the intention of pursuing the global objective, the agenda is deployed in a system of 17 sustainable development goals to enable the global community to address the current and future global challenges.
The FCV, as an organization rooted in Barcelona and working in the international field, we declare ourselves committed to the objectives of the 2030 agenda. Our volunteering projects and educational activities, based on non-formal methodology, intercultural learning and peace education, allow us to contribute the achievement of the following sustainable development goals:
Ensure inclusive, equitable and quality education, and promote lifelong learning opportunities throughout the world.
FCV works to eliminate gender disparities in education and guarantee equal access for people in vulnerable situations. FCV promotes the development of professional and personal skills, through non-formal education as a tool to access the labour market and entrepreneurship, particularly for young people.
For this reason, FCV offers learning spaces for young people to become more active, autonomous and responsible citizens, dynamically collaborating with non-profit organizations. Moreover, we believe in education and volunteering as instruments for sustainable development, the protection of human rights, gender equality, the promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, and the value of cultural diversity.
Reduce inequalities between countries.
FCV promotes social, economic and political inclusion of all young people who participate in our projects, regardless of age, gender, religion, origin or any other condition. One of our goals is to seek equal opportunities among people.
To make this possible, we open ways for all young people to carry out solidarity actions to improve their environment while building a better present and future for all. On the other hand, we are in favour of facilitating migration and the movement of people between countries to promote intercultural, cooperative and solidarity learning as tools for reducing inequalities.
Promote fair, peaceful and inclusive societies.
From FCV we condemn all forms of violence. One of the fundamental values of our organization is the culture of peace education to enable positive social change in society. Otherwise, we firmly believe in a justice system accessible to all, inclusive and representative.
The FCV encourages the participation of youth leaders in awareness-raising and training actions dedicated to peacebuilding and conflict transformation and carries out projects to build networks of entities at an international level in the field of peace and disarmament, education in human rights, non-violence, intercultural dialogue and democratic participation. Moreover, we promote human development, social, economic and cultural initiatives, at a local, regional and international level, to strengthen institutional relations between countries.
