„Children and teenagers today will face challenges which we can only make estimations about. Therefore the current global situation demands futuristic oriented educational approaches with an increased connection to reality.
It is essential to emphasize on the development of solution oriented team work and to give young beings the tools that empower them to actively design their present reality and therefore their future.
Empathic Communication, Social Competences, Creativity, independent Learning-Thinking and Acting, Sustainability, Teamwork, Entrepreneurship, Conscious Eating and  Digital Interactions are already and will be more and more relevant competences in education in the decades to come.”

Quote by Joy Spenner, Founder and Leader of the first sustainable, plant based and bilingual (German/English) school in Germany and Europe
