Report: Learning together: Education, Awareness and Participation

by Sally Anderson, Aarhus University

Although education is often thought of as what goes on in schools, our work in REGREEN has shown education to be an intrinsically collaborative process involving all ages and societal domains. It is impossible to imagine ‘education’ without families, laws, policies, economy, city planning, architecture, knowledge regimes, landscape, history and more. While children learn from adults, adults learn from children, not least because what children do, feel and know are of collective concern. Finally, we all learn from the historical artefacts, things, landscapes, concepts and ideas that shape our lives. Education in this sense is an everyday process – interdependent, collaborative, mulled over, debated, and contested.
