Bringing Nature into learning

The Harmony Project's Richard Dunne talks about supporting young people in developing a 'duty of care' towards the environment and the role education has to play in empowering them to become future leaders of sustainability. 

The Harmony Project’s Richard Dunne was recently interviewed for the Spirit of Humanity Forum website about his work building a curriculum inspired by Nature’s principles of Harmony.

In this article, he talks about supporting young people in developing a ‘duty of care’ towards the environment and the role education has to play in empowering them to become future leaders of sustainability.

‘When we observe the natural world, everything works together in a state of wholeness. There is no separation or division between one element and another, and this is what enables it to work so well. If we take the same approach to the way our children learn, it will surely make more sense to them. This joined-up approach is how education could be and I believe it is essential we learn in this way if we are to create a sustainable future.’

– Richard Dunne, in conversation with SoH
