Transforming the world by building an intentional school culture

"I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world."

Throughout the history of humankind, many people including Socrates declared to be citizens of the Earth.

Transforming Education for Human Flourishing. 

The concept of Global Citizenship is an old idea, and global leaders, educators and practitioners recognize that the concept of Global Citizenship is relevant today more than ever.

अयं निज: परो वेति गणना लघुचेतसाम् ।
उदारचरितानां तु वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम् ॥

Transliteration: "Ayam nijaH paro veti gaNanaa laghuchetasaam
udaaracharitaam tu vasudhaiva kutumbakam"

Translation: The thought that one person is related to me and another is not is that of the narrow-minded. For the broadminded, however, the whole world is one family.

“two-man-mindedness”

Definition: 

"wishing to be established oneself, seeks also to establish others; wishing to be enlarged oneself, seeks also to enlarge others."

 

Relationship between two humans: humanity, benevolence
