Why we travel?
Because it provides us with an authentic understanding of global reality. Throughout all the programme we use travel to learn and we learn to travel.
For a meaningful travel, it is crucial to treat it as an educational process. Such attitude is contrary to tourism and demands a lot of effort and dedication from students as well as professional guidance of teachers.
Moreover, travel keeps us aware of the big issues of our time, which future generations will be dealing with it and empowers us to teach about them and facilitate their resolutions though out students.
Such a method not only ensures holistic perspective on the world, but also provides us with opportunities to connect with people of diverse cultural background, which trains us to become tolerant teachers.
How we travel?
As the world is our classroom, we carry our blackboard, tables and chairs with us when travelling. In the first year – it is a bus, which allows us to slowly emerge and make our way through changing geographic zones, cultures and realities. In the second year - it is our house, where we invite people to share, listen and learn about the world together with us. In the third year – it is our teachers’ luggage, which represents all the knowledge we acquired so far and ability to transfer in to the students in creative and accessible ways.
All the way thought he programme we travel humbly, we investigate important matters, seek for understanding of others’ reality and touch lives of people on the way. We travel with and among people and learn from every one of them.
Where we travel
We travel to African continent to practice our global understanding of the world and to Europe – to experience the reality of the society, which our students come from. We create individual routes for every travel and students themselves are in charge of planning and executing the travels.
We search for richest and poorest, illiterate and educated, religious and atheist, traditional and alternative sources of knowledge, which help us to form the picture of the teachers we want to be in the future.
