13-17 July 2019 Neohumanist Education Conference - Educating for a Bright Future. We are living in an unprecedented age, with access to advanced technology and the potential to solve many of the great challenges that have faced humanity for millenia. Yet, ironically, we are living in the midst of a global crisis and ecological disaster. In order to harness our ability to change this course, we need to find ways to collectively cultivate the values and wisdom that will direct our resources towards the well-being and prosperity of all beings.
This conference aims to bring together experts in Neohumanist education with practitioners, researchers and peers in progressive approaches to education. Together we will be exploring the following questions:
• What are the values and new ways of thinking needed to bring about the paradigm shift we now know is necessary for creating a bright future?
• How can we build the inner resources and ecological wisdom of students and teachers to prepare for a rapidly changing world and unpredictable future?
• What role can spirituality and the arts play as vehicles of transcendence, social cohesion, and ecological wisdom in education?
• How can we generate new narratives and visions that lead us towards positive futures?
