Out of our experience in Austria a 1-week program Edu on Tour:2012 was coming out as a dynamic group learning process with concrete results and a social impact. In November 2012 12 social entrepreneurs and education activists from all around the world met up to a social media campaign for making alternatives in education visible.
The participants realized the tour within a self-organizing process from and met the first time in person at the start in Amsterdam.
Among those were also the responsible stuff and founders of Nuestra Escuela (Puerto Rico; Stated funded school with democratic principles; http://www.nuestraescuela.org/) that is one of the driving forces in the education transition in South America. During the Edu on Tour Styria we visited 5 alterna-tive education institutions.
