The Call for Educational Transformation

What we mean by Regeneration and Thrivability

Summary of the 7 Transformative Learning Perspectives

Source: r3.0 Educational Transformation Blueprint (BP9)
  • Provides essential conditions and attractors for transformative learning and for inspiring our personal and societal development towards regeneration and thrivability.
  • Provides necessary foundations for developing our ecological literacies and ecosystemic capacities for regeneration and thrivability.
  • Provides necessary foundations for developing our future literacies and imaginal capacities for regeneration and thrivability.
  • Provides necessary foundations for developing our agency capacities for stewarding regeneration and thrivability.
  • Provides essential inquiries for developing our digital literacies, connective capacities, and regenerative feedback systems for creating thrivable learning systems.
  • Provide necessary foundations for developing conscious communication, depth perception, and sense-making capacities and for becoming the story creators for regeneration and thrivability.
  • Provides the necessary foundations for developing community based global consciousness that is life centered and future inspired, as well as for the development of collaborative capacities to become caretakers and stewards of our commons — our world and future.

The Why of Educational Transformation

  • How does what we learn and how we learn catalyze the required personal as well as collective transformations of our assumptions, habits, attitudes, and actions
  • And how does formal and informal education support and preparepeople to access and develop their future potentials of a new kind of civilization that is life-centered and ecological by design?
  • Is education inviting us to explore what it means to consciously influence how we evolve as a species during this time of unprecedented changes?
  1. Is the future possibility of a regenerative and thrivable world sufficiently appealing and realizable for engaging people on a personal and collective learning journey for regeneration and thrivability?
  2. How can education become an attractor and enabling condition for the inner and outer shifts towards regeneration and thriving?
  3. What are we teaching new learners about the ways of life on planet Earth and the modus operandi for their and our success and wellbeing?

The Purpose of Education

  1. Developing our awareness, understanding, and capacities for regeneration and thrivability.
  2. Honouring the earth as the home we share and by learning from the feedback of life.
  3. Becoming the systems, cultures, and civilizations for a thrivable world and future.

Exploring the Enabling Role of Education

Corona Lessons and Impacts on Education

  1. Collective commitment — The issues at hand require collective commitments towards our shared responsibilities for resolving the multiple challenges we are faced with, and with awareness and responsibility for how this impacts the most vulnerable.
  2. Cooperative innovation — Finding lasting cures for all people is the only solution, not merely for a subset of a few. Long-term cooperation and a collaborative focus are required; especially within the business and investment community. Economizing life by prioritizing short-term economic gains over systemic health and wellbeing is symptomatic of the root causes of our sustainability crises.
  3. Transformation embraces uncertainty — A crisis always brings uncertainty, the question is how we can work with this uncertainty to let go of old habits, embracing the unknown, and make space for the emergence of new possibilities through trial and error and experimentation. Seeking to secure or eliminate perceived threats limits our transformative capacities and blocks learning.
  4. Future preparedness begins now — The COVID pandemic reveals how unprepared we are to resolve the much greater crises of runaway climate change and irreversible biodiversity loss. Until we develop the required capacities for becoming ‘future-creative’, the default learning pattern will be one of learning by crisis rather than learning how to avoid creating crises.
