More than half of the world's children and adolescents are not learning.
244 million children and young people worldwide are out of school.
Schools of happiness is...
A global initiative of the World Happiness Foundation that aims to promote well-being and happiness in educational centers around the world, bringing and adapting to the educational world the United Nations resolutions regarding happiness and well-being, specifically resolutions 65/309. and 66/208. The approach of the Schools of Happiness Initiative (IEdF) is holistic and transversal, covering its influence on students, teachers, administrative staff, parents, from Primary to University education.
“The aim is that through the synergy of these elements, it is possible to lay
the foundations for an education that nurtures not only the minds, but also
the hearts and souls of those who participate in it."
The Teacher as the axis of Happiness
The Happiness Schools Initiative recognises the importance of teachers as the
backbone of Happiness. The Happiness Schools Initiative works in its early stages
with teachers, focusing on their empowerment through three basic principles:
Teacher Wellbeing for a Positive and
Stimulating Classroom Environment
Promoting Skills and Training to Add Value in
Emotionally Aware and Purposefully
How to be a School
The Schools of Happiness accreditation
Under the integration of the above framework, the Amauta Project and the World Happiness Foundation are joining forces to recognise "Happiness Schools" that have excelled in three key areas:
Connection with oneself
Connection to the environment
Connection to society
Co-cocreation of the specific educational action plan for your educational center
First steps after accreditation
Gathering indicators and knowledge
Training in educational coaching, talent management and neuropedagogy
Follow-up and data collection
Improves teaching by including aspects of environmental education and sustainability, incorporating ecological and ethical issues through the teaching of innovation techniques.
This will not only enrich the educational experience, but will also contribute to the formation of conscious and responsible citizens who value sustainability and both individual and collective well-being.
