This article discusses the question of how young people perceive global connections and the role of religious beliefs in this context. Therefore, statements by students from Protestant schools on four continents are analysed and interpreted in terms of their convictions regarding social issues, school and education, religion and church. This reveals numerous values and visions, some of which are based on religious convictions, but also reveals regional differences between the continents. The educational conclusions recommend promoting young people’s awareness of global challenges.
