Why Edu on Tour?
In our opinion our current educational system doesn’t support a healthy environment neither for the children nor the teachers. Instead of creating an environment of curiousity, creativity, playfullness and willingness to learn it enables the opposite. So we run Edu on Tour! Take a look on our short description: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeoA2fiBykU
We promote environments which help kids to fully develop their potential, to follow their passion and live up to a natural human behaviour.
During our research for outstanding examples we realized that there are many more who are like us. On an Edu on Tour we want to meet them, connect with them on a deeper level and build up strong relationships to co create our future together.
