Arranged by Association for World Education (AWE) and Mitraniketan

What is the state of human growth and evolution in the early years of this 21st Century?  What is called for from our beings to step into this new era? What kind of education can support this development? This two-part AWE Seminar is designed to examine these questions through an in-depth dialogue with educators from around the world, with special attention to the circumstances and experience in Kerala, India.

AWE educators invite their members and colleagues to join this working seminar to explore our perspectives on opportunities for enlightenment, along with our best practices for creating whole, world- centric human beings. Our dialogue and research will center around the following questions:

  • What is Enlightenment for the 21st Century?
  • What are the opportunities for uncovering and nurturing enlightenment?
  • What is an enlightened teacher for the 21st century?

 

It is our goal to better define our AWE common ground on the essential questions listed above.
