The heart of the WSA is about vision and the question of what we want to achieve with our education. The vision is about the responsibility as a school towards the young people and their development as human beings, citizens and professionals. On the other hand, it is about the responsibility that we as a school want to take for each other and for the earth and to find a connection with the social context of our time.
By working with a broad group of colleagues, young people and other stakeholders such as parents or businesses to give substance to the school's vision of the future, a commonly shared 'dot on the horizon' emerges; an ambition that is realized together. Such a vision inspires and provides a basis for interpreting education for sustainable development.
It is important to pause at regular intervals and hold this vision up to the light. Sustainability issues are complex and in our rapidly changing world new knowledge and insights are constantly emerging. A learning school is able to keep a vision alive and adjust it if necessary.
