Thriving in Dystopia

Ep70: Rabindranath Tagore: The forest school as inspiration for our modern world

November 23, 2022

Dave and Bob discuss nature education, poetry, and school reform, using the lens of Rabindranath Tagore, and Bengali Nobel Prize winner who led an incredible life in the early 20th century. He changed the way we see education and is still influencing the world today. We also look at modern day decedents of his pedagogy like Richard Louv, Adrienne Maree Brown, and Audre Lorde.
