Abstract

[abstract: This manifesto places unity and personal choice at the foundation for program development. It declares that holistic educational change is essential to an international populace seeking peace, social justice, and sustainability. Various tenets should lead curricular change in all schools. Spiritual approaches to learning naturally promote the development of compassion, wisdom, and love for all life. Personal choice and creative thinking stimulate self-initiated learning and motivates the greatness within each person. Cooperation promotes sustainable lifestyles. When these tenets are manifested into educational programs, students enjoy learning and excel in life, because they take responsibility for their own experiences.]
