Our philosophy

Humanitarian Education

The essence of Humanitarian Education is to find ways to interact with nature, with non-human animals and with each other that are enriching, positive and offer solidarity. What this approach does is to encourage a change in attitude, belief and behaviour towards the environment, other species and our fellow humans, all of which lead to humanitarian values.

Humanitarian Education, just like other anti-oppression paradigms (women’s rights, civil rights, LGTBQ rights), will take its time to have an effect on and become absorbed by society. In order to start helping children to learn humanitarian values we need to introduce a programme, via the school curriculum, which allows both educators and students to become more familiar with more humanitarian ways of thinking and interacting.

Humanitarian Education encompasses the complete range of knowledge, tools and strategies to teach Human Rights, animal protection and environmental management. It also deals with cultural issues such as the interconnected realities and members of a just and healthy society. This new paradigm does not only instil the wish and capacity to live with compassion, integrity and wisdom. It also offers the tools and knowledge to put our values into practice so that we may find solutions which work for everybody.

Humanitarian Education includes 4 elements:

  • It offers precise information, that is to say it gives us the knowledge with which to face change.
  • It fosters the 3 C: Curiosity, Creativity and Critical thought, which are instruments which allow us to face life’s challenges.
  • It encourages the 3 R: Reverence, Respect and Responsibility, which give us the motivation to face life’s challenges.
  • It offers positive alternatives and tools for the conflict resolution, which means we can solve the difficulties which arise.

The time has come to make life much more ethical, sustainable and in peace with the planet.
