'the whole of life is learning therefore education can have no ending' Eduard Lindeman
Lifewide Education is a community-based, educational enterprise whose purpose is to champion and support a lifewide and ecological approach to lifelong learning, personal development and education..As we interact purposefully with the world in our everyday, lifewide environments, we weave together aspects of ourselves and our environment, in an ecology of practice. By recognising that our learning and practice underpin our ecological being, we are laying the foundations for a future based on ecological principles and values- an important step in the transition to a new Ecological Civilisation. We welcome everyone who is interested in these ideas and practices.
