What prompted you to become involved with Universal Education?
The fact that it is oriented to build ethics, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, education, social status, age or spiritual belief.
What is the most important outcome for you personally?
To realize that we can work for peace starting with ourselves. Going back to basics with habitual and deliberate acts of kindness, as individuals, but always oriented to the benefit of others. And having fun in a spontaneous way!
How are you planning to apply what you have learnt from Universal Education in your life, work or community?
Finding inspiration in historic and everyday heroes. Believing in our own potential. Discovering the invisible threads that keep us interconnected. And then, moving into mindful actions. Refreshing the style, but keeping the essence: One Big HUGE Love.
