Credos

” Everyone has the right to education. (…) Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.” The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.1948 – article 26

“Only by personal commitment to the here and now of one’s life situation, fully accepting one’s past and taking choiceful responsibility for one’s future, is the dialectic conflict necessary for learning experienced. The dawn of integrity comes with the acceptance of responsibility for the course of one’s own life. For in taking responsibility for the world, we are given back the power to change it.” David A. Kolb. 1984:230
