A GLOBAL EDUCATION COMMITTEE



A GLOBAL EDUCATION COMMITTEE DEFINING EDUCATION'S ROLE IN SUSTAINABLE, CO-ORDINATED & INCLUSIVE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT



2005 - 2012
TAISBA [The Anglican International Schools of Botswana, Africa]

 

Think Tank Thuto is helping plan TAISBA's child centered learning environments where the explicit assumption of connectedness, wholeness and being fully human – a holistic perspective – will be taught. If one adopts a holistic view of the planet, life on Earth - the global village – there is connectedness to all life, honouring diversity in Unity, an experience of being, belonging and caring for all.

 

Community is an integral aspect in holistic education. As relationships and learning about relationships are keys to understanding ourselves, so the aspects of community is vital in this learning process. Forbes (1996) states, “In holistic education the classroom is often seen as a community which is within the larger community of the school, or which is within the larger community of the village, town, or city, and which is, by extension, within the larger community of humanity.”
