Call for Paper

Living means being and situating oneself in a “corner of the world”, colouring it with words, emotions, relationships, culture/s. In any stage of life and with different levels of responsibility, living in our corner of the world – be it a house, a lair, a street, a country – means being part of the being of the Planet. The richness and fragility of the connections between human actions and being of the Planet asks us to design an education for the future that cultivates emotional and social intelligence and systemic thinking. Education Earth Nature promotes the study and development of new paths towards interdisciplinary perspectives and an ecological awareness that is part of the lifelong experience.
