The scientific fields of evolutionary anthropology and behavioral sciences have produced a wealth of new insights into the nature of human behavior, cognition and culture, especially in the last several decades. This science offers immense opportunities for education in the 21st century, particularly considering the role of human behavior as driver – and solution – of many sustainable development challenges.
Our interdisciplinary teacher’s guide outlines our educational design concept. It provides introductory readings around core concepts of human sciences and ideas for exploring them in the classroom.
Schools are central social environments for young people to grow and develop themselves. How schools are governed, and which norms, values, and institutions get adopted, can all drive major life trajectories for how students think about their own learning and civic capacities and about the world they live in. This community science field guide provides supports for students around the world to investigate and strengthen the cooperation dynamics of their own school governance systems.
