Education is enormously important for the opportunities that every individual has in life and is even seen today as a human right. Education enables everyone to advance socially. Education also helps to understand and overcome complex challenges of our society (crisis of democracy, growing gap between rich and poor, climate change, etc.).

Especially in poor countries, education is still a luxury, as many people there earn just enough money to afford the daily food and children often have to work with them. 58 million children worldwide do not go to school. But even in rich countries like ours, education often still depends on social background and educational poverty must be combated.

After all, education is the most important key to individual and social development.
