About the Center for Education Diplomacy

Every person deserves a strong start to life that supports the development of their full potential through every life stage. Education diplomacy supports comprehensive human development by promoting responsive systems and relationships both within the education sector and with related sectors as well, such as the health sector. The inter-connectivity supported by education diplomacy helps to secure sustainable futures for all.

The Center for Education Diplomacy is designed to provide a space for open discussion of this exciting concept. Its goals are to:

  • Lead the development of the concept of education diplomacy
  • Provide resources for organizations and individuals working to incorporate education diplomacy into their efforts
  • Create a cadre of experienced education diplomats to further global education and development goals

The Center for Education Diplomacy was founded by the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI). ACEI is an international non-profit based in Washington, D.C., USA, whose mission is to promote and support the optimal education, development, and well-being of children worldwide. ACEI works for a secure human future for all, and sees education as crucially important to achieving global peace and security, economic prosperity and stability, and a healthy, happy human race.
