Education—lifelong learningis the cornerstone of civilisation. It is essential to building a healthy social infrastructure that has the capacity to evolve and endure over time.

Parenting and teaching are noble callings, and the impact of these roles on the present and future generations is incalculable. 

BELONGING projects for teachers, students and parents, build authenticity by developing character and nurturing relationship skills from inside out. As connections are discovered, true leading begins, and competition is quickly replaced by conscious co-operation.  

This is the foundation on which to build a genuine Community.

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
— Albert Einstein

Let's Play!

Team Play is a ‘game’ of roles and responsibilities that cultivates character and competence by helping students exercise responsibility for all social interaction in their classroom.

Students age 3-10 learn how to responsibly deal with challenges when they are given the authority to implement change. They discover that true possibilities reside – and sometimes hide – in what sometimes feels impossible.

They discover:

  • How to build healthy relationships from inside out

  • Why diversity is essential to harmony

  • How authenticity is growing their natural abilities

  • Why co-creating a shared space reduces stress

  • How everyone is an integral part of a Whole system and

A Global Solution

Resolving education challenges for teachers & students

Why does it work?

Because it’s fun!

BELONGING rehumanises education for teachers, students and parents.

Initiated in 2004 in elementary schools in Mirano, [Venice] Italy, EduCaring and TeamPlay continues to this day. In 2017, successful design betas were trialed internationally fuelling our commitment to bring BELONGING to the world.

BELONGING is about lifelong learning, individuals discovering how to understand themselves and others growing an appreciations of their interconnections with all life. Understanding unique internal realities and their different responsibilities is essential to developing empathy and cooperation.

Creativity arises when all are free to feel and think and do what benefits one and all.

Individually, we are one drop. Together we are an ocean.
