This is a realm of conceptual essays contributed by members of the Learn2Change – Global Network of Educational Activists. Important terms, ideas and concepts, which serve as a basis for our educational work are discussed. Guiding questions are amongst others: What does wealth / Good Life / development mean for you in your specific work and living context / in your country? Which local challenges for an ecologically sound and globally just world are you actually facing in this context? What role does education play for achieving a Good Life for all? Most of the essays were developed for the discussion during the first Learn2Change Academy.
