Learn to Change Resource Series
The L2C Resource Series has you in mind as a reader, teacher, trainer, facilitator. In this series we propose approaches for developing democratic practices and holistic learning, in a way that addresses the learner’s head, heart and hands.
The activities and methods in the booklets can be used in all sorts of contexts, be it schools, higher education, professional development… These approaches have been tried and tested in real-life situations, with real people of all ages and walks of life. We share them now in our series to support educators in their efforts to learn to change and change to learn.
L2C believes in the power of education to promote change in society. It is about each of us, as educators, as lifelong learners, as teachers, as parents, as social, political and cultural actors who care about and can act for change in education. We strive to transform our education structures and practices so that education serves the vision of the society we want to live in. We want to give voice to education practitioners so that they can engage in authentic, value-laden educational relationships that support human rights and democracy. We re-think and transform education and pedagogy. Our mission is to develop individual and collective potential to co-create and actively participate in a sustainable, open, peaceful and happy society.
Our actions support the development of the whole person within a framework of social justice and creative human emancipation. Within this framework, L2C is committed to creating and offering training resources.
The Learn to Change Resource Series is part of a broader initiative to support educators and learners. Each booklet offers the detailed description of a six-hour training session for educators on a topic of interest related to democracy and human rights.
