A focus on international education and global citizenship – an interview with Springer Nature

Springer Nature’s Interview with its Authors, Editors and Researchers

Springer Nature’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Programme aims to connect the researchers who are tackling the world’s toughest challenges with the practitioners in policy and business who desperately need those insights to achieve their goals in improving the world, by making our publishing activities more visible to our key communities through a variety of channels. Our newly launched SDG4 hub focuses on Quality Education.

In honor of International Day of Education (January 24) we reached out to some of our authors, editors, and researchers, asking them to reflect on how we can work towards equality and quality in education and how they are helping in the ongoing mission to achieve SDG 4, and how we, as a scholarly publisher, are helping to contribute to these goals by publishing and distributing their research. In this interview we hear from Namrata Sharma.

Educator and Peacebuilder, Dr. Daisaku Ikeda’s 2020 Annual Peace Proposal Toward Our Shared Future: Constructing an Era of Human Solidarity Applauds Youth Climate Action and Promotes Nuclear Weapons Treaty.

“Makiguchi never denied the value of competition within the workings of society, considering a mutual striving for excellence to be an enriching source of energy and creativity. What he found problematic was our tendency to view the world as solely the site of competition for survival, to base our behavior on the assumption that our lives are independent of all others and to remain in denial regarding the effects of such behavior.

The foundation of Makiguchi’s thinking was an awareness that this world is, more than anything, the site of shared living.”
