beauty is not just aesthetics or art. attention to beauty is a lifestyle, a philosophy. all subjects can be grounded in beauty. if we are going to pieRce the underbelly of industrialization in our culture, beauty will shift us to a more ecological way of thinking. it will also deepen our human development and understanding of one another.
that's why, In this new village, the children learn from the moment they step into the school they are capable of working together to make a space beautiful. This is also why our children spend 20 percent of their education outside in culture and nature, beyond the classroom walls. and it's why our children learn that people sing, speak, dance, see and explain the world differently, depending on where they come from and, at the same time, that we are guided by the same motifs and the question - how do I live a meaningful, fulfilling, connected life that brings me and those around me happiness and joy?
This is a place where children learn to think critically, to feel warmly, to sense the interconnectedness of everything, to develop a strong and sturdy sense of self, to relate to others in a healthy and open manner and to become ready to approach new life phases when it's time to leave our school.
