Globalisation, climatic change and the exponential development of science and technology are compelling into the transition from Consumer Society to a Knowledge based Society, a society capable of developing itself durably in an enviroment which is limited in terms of matter and energy.
In the present context, supporting the young and guiding their intellectual and emotional development becomes crucial, for they are the ones who will actually conduct the implementation of this change. It will be their knowledge and their abilities to understand and to wisely manage the inherent crises of the globalisation process that the quality of our life, and maybe even the survival of human species, will depend on.
Without a coherent cooperation between family, school and social environment – in both its public and private dimensions – there is no means to ensure that critical mass of expertise, capable of managing coherently and equitably a social transformation of this scale.
In order to initialise such a process we need a „seed”, a place where the actors involved in this educational metamorphosis can meet on equal positions.
We have named this retort for the recrystallisation of the educational process „NEXUS” – a space for personal development, for motivation and for nurturing the abilities required by the features of a Knowledge based Society, a space for the awareness of the individual toward social, economic and cultural problems that affect humanity at regional and global level.
