The Circle of Courage® Philosophy | Reclaiming Youth International

The Circle of Courage® Philosophy | Reclaiming Youth International | Circle of Courage and Global Cultures | Scoop.it

The Circle of Courage® is a model of youth empowerment supported by contemporary research, the heritage of early youth work pioneers and Native philosophies of child care. The model is encompassed in four core values: belonging, mastery, independence, and generosity. The central theme of this model is that a set of shared values must exist in any community to create environments that ultimately benefit all.

Barefoot College

Barefoot College | Circle of Courage and Global Cultures | Scoop.it

From the website:  "Barefoot College...Established in 1972, the Barefoot College is a non-government organisation that has been providing basic services and solutions to problems in rural communities, with the objective of making them self-sufficient and sustainable. These ‘Barefoot solutions’ can be broadly categorised into solar energy, water, education, health care, rural handicrafts, people’s action, communication, women’s empowerment and wasteland development."

 

Credit to :

Seattle-Earth Charter (http//:www.earthcharterinaction.org)
To see this in action, explore The Barefoot College in Tilonia, India. Hundreds of "illiterate women" build solar ovens/panels, become dentists/architects/nurses without formal Western-oriented training (no reading, no writing, no diplomas). Amazing. http://www.barefootcollege.org/

From the website:  "Nunavut-based director Zacharias Kunuk (Atanarjuat The Fast Runner) and researcher and filmmaker Dr. Ian Mauro (Seeds of Change) have teamed up with Inuit communities to document their knowledge and experience regarding climate change. This new documentary, the world’s first Inuktitut language film on the topic, takes the viewer “on the land” with elders and hunters to explore the social and ecological impacts of a warming Arctic. This unforgettable film helps us to appreciate Inuit culture and expertise regarding environmental change and indigenous ways of adapting to it."

Great blog from Carol Black:

"Occupy your Brain!

One of the most profound changes that occurs when modern schooling is introduced into traditional societies around the world is a radical shift in the locus of power and control over learning from children, families, and communities to ever more centralized systems of authority. While all cultures are different, in many non-modernized societies children enjoy wide latitude to learn by free play, interaction with other children of multiple ages, immersion in nature, and direct participation in adult work and activities.
