Support ministerial, scholastic and academic institutions and research centers working in the fields of education and citizenship, education and multicultural societies, and education and sustainability, in order to develop comparative studies within a hemispheric framework. Promote collaboration among institutions, and specifically among schools, already working in these fields, through joint projects and information exchange.
