The association Global Education and Development (EGD asbl) is a pluralist association active in the field of education for Peace and values, focused towards non-violent education, global citizenship and cooperation for people of all cultures, origins, ethnicities and philosophical beliefs. It provides children, adolescents and adults with training, activities and educational tools to encourage them to become actors of positive change in themselves and their environment.
Our association has been active for more than fifteen years in Belgium and is recognized as Youth Organization by the Federation Wallonie Bruxelles, as well as by the European Youth Federation under the Council of Europe. It also has consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations since 2018.
The association is aimed to children and young people from 3 to 18 years old as well as the adults around them. Activities for young people are developed both in and out of school, so that they can learn education for peace, non-violence and world citizenship on a weekly basis. The association equally works on the social and intercultural integration of people from different national and cultural backgrounds. It also coordinates a center of study, training and research.
Since 2005, the association has been developing several projects:

- One Friday a month, the association organizes “Friendship Friday“, a moment of gathering, to be together in all diversity.
