Promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies
Goal 16 of the Sustainable Development Goals is dedicated to the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, the provision of access to justice for all, and building effective, accountable institutions at all levels.
The Master Plan for SDG 16
The Master Plan’s vision for a peaceful society is possible only if we understand and learn each other. Our research has found that the cause of unrest and tension is a lack of knowledge about other cultures and traditions. We believe that it is possible to achieve peace in the world by educating students and youth about other nation’s cultures and commonalities.
- Collegiate Internationals: As laid out in the Collegiate Congress Master Plan, the regional office will create Collegiate Internationals (CI) in a major city in every country. CI is a platform for international students to meet and network. CI will serve as a platform to create oneness and harmony among international students. International students are the channel of global development. Collegiate Congress in no way accepts the teaching that globalization is the result of academia.
- The Diplomatic Forum: This forum serves as a platform for the diplomats to share their country’s culture, global contribution, and commonalities with others. In this forum, the Diplomat also shares his/her path to diplomacy. Students will also have the opportunity to ask questions, giving them a rich learning experience. The Diplomatic Forum shows our youth a different reality and new perspective of a country and its culture.
- Universities will help support Collegiate Internationals and the Diplomatic Forum.
- The Master Plan Committee will help with organizing the events in partnership with Academic Partners, Student Representatives and UN affiliates.
