A curriculum framework for seven years of science education is delivered as a proposal for discussion, for the nine years of schooling that the Incheon Declaration defines as compulsory (UNESCO, 2015). Every child should learn Science in their mother tongue, hence at least one global science curriculum should be provided for free, translated for free, and posted in a public site. The materials derived from the same curriculum should be provided with the same perspective: translated into the

We strongly believe that, to achieve the 2030 goals for education, a massive global act of passion altruism that puts each teacher and pedagogue's creativity at the service of global science teaching. For other subjects, the feeling and convictions are the same. But, because we all depend on ecosystems that sustain us, to deliver that message using a science curriculum is an obligation. Sharing a global science curriculum open to change and debate that conjugates Biology, Geology, Physics, and Chemistry, while having in consideration the sustainable development goals, is the aim of this manuscript.
