Education is the basis for creating a more inclusive and equal society. In order to ensure both equity and inclusion, we offer different education programs to different students. Our education programs focus on awareness for students of people who live different lives from them, and on the empowerment of vulnerable groups.
Media is a powerful tool to shape societies. Where this tool used to be in the hands of a few people, not it is in the hands of many. In this innovative education program students learn how media shapes opinions and how media can be used to promote social inclusion. They will also create their own media which brings visibility to marginalized people.
Our Inclusion Program brings students of international schools in contact with people from different realities, for instance, we bring the students in contact with people with special needs. We aim to show the diversity, complexity, and fullness of every human being.
Instead of teaching philosophy in the traditional way (i.e., teaching students about established philosophers) students will focus on understanding themselves and others; inclusive reasoning; critical thinking; and constructive discussion. Philosophical discussion will be stimulated by discussing situations of everyday life, popular culture, and recent events, and abstracting from those concrete situations to more abstract and general claims.
THE We In Power Program
In this program we focus on communication, expression, self-confidence, trust, and empowerment through different sorts of arts. We are conducting The WE in Power in ‘migrant schools’ in Shanghai, the students of this school can often not attend regular education, because their parents lack a permit to live in the city. The education they usually receive is very basic. B人BEL aims to educate these children, not to teach them a subject, but to develop themselves as people.
