Each of us has our own rhythm. What do we need to be able to communicate and live with people with different rhythms peacefully and happily?

In Japan, there are more and more children who won't or can't go to school which have been designed for them to develop their ability to live in a society.

What kind of education is required for nurturing our own rhythm in a society where values are increasingly diversifying? What is the difference between being as we are and being selfish?

In this Salon, you will meet two speakers who run very unique schools to share their ideas with you, and also we, TEDxAnjo selected special TED Talks for you!

Why don’t you come and think about the future and core essence of Child Education with us?

本来その力を育む場のひとつである学校に行かない / 行けない子が今、日本で増えている。ますます価値観が多様化していく社会の中で、自分らしいリズムを育むためにはどんな教育が求められているのか?「ありのまま」と「わがまま」はどこが違うのだろう?
