What is it about?

There have been many efforts to shift education to align with current societal needs. There have also been international initiatives in response to interconnected global issues that impact ecological systems, the viability of economies and communities and the health and wellbeing of people. This paper offers a perspective that aligns with Hopkin’s (2013) view that the repurposing of education must reflect a vision that contributes to wellbeing for all – individually, collectively, and for the ‘other than human’ life on our planet. We offer Living Schools as a concept that supports a wellbeing for all vision.
