Nature’s principles of Harmony show us how the world works according to principles that ensure it is sustainable, healthy and resilient. These can teach us how to live in a more enlightened way. For example, when we consider how the principle of the Cycle works in the natural world, we start to understand that there is no waste in Nature and that natural systems are endlessly regenerative. When we use this and other principles of Harmony to frame learning, we can explore with students how we can learn from these principles in order to identify more sustainable ways of living and being.
There are clear links to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, too, in particular target 4.7, which stresses the importance of education in helping learners acquire the skills and knowledge to promote sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles.
