Natural Humanism believes that current forms of education are coming up against their limitations. It advocates teaching cognitive, emotional and practical skills in equal measure. Doing this helps develop a balance of intellectual, practical, creative, empathetic and intuitive abilities. This should lead to more connection, balance, respect and tolerance within communities and society as a whole.
Education must be appropriate to the stages of children’s development and take into account the autonomy and resilience that children have already achieved. Controversial topics must be introduced at the right time.
In addition, Natural Humanism advocates more and better integration of nature, sports, nutrition and communication skills into the curriculum.
Education is a lifelong necessity and should be made available equally to all. Natural Humanism therefore advocates a system in which people who were not in a position to study when they were younger receive the same support later in life as people who were.
