As the global economy and our planetary environment continue to mutate at a rapid pace, we need a new approach to education. Many schools and universities indoctrinate people into belief systems and ideologies that are now outmoded, or train them for jobs that will no longer exist by the time they graduate...basic skills that support self-sufficiency and sustainability are rarely taught.
A new approach to education is necessary - one that serves local needs and facilitates global connectivity.
