Why is it so important to take a holistic approach to young people’s sense of self? Nina explores how educators can be the connection between children, nature and the wider society with the aim of creating a community of learning.
In this episode, two teachers, from Portugal and Japan, share how their work enables them to support collaborations between students, schools and communities to help protect the environment.
Nina also talks to Ross Hall, co-lead of the Learning Societies portfolio at the Jacobs Foundation, about the tools and actions needed for educators, schoolchildren and the wider community to learn and thrive together.
