Encountering education through existential challenges and community, re-connection and renewal for an ecologically based future, Giles Barrow

Directly inspired by Indian British activist Satish Kumar's 2013 seminal work 'Soil, Soul and Society', this book rethinks education in line with thoughts around the current climate crisis, the purpose of education in a post-pandemic world, and the mental health of children, teachers and youth across societies
