What is Learning for Well-being?

Learning for Well-being describes the journey of learning to realize our unique potential through physical, emotional, mental and spiritual development in relation to self, others and the environment.
It is learning to be and become me … in the context of the community and society in which I live and to actively contribute to them in ways that truly nurture the uniqueness of me.



Using an integrative framework, it focuses on cultivating capacities and environments that:


• nurture the expression of one’s unique potential;

• respect the uniqueness and diversity of each individual;

• emphasize the nature and quality of relationships;

• support participation and engagement while considering the whole person, whole process and whole systems.


As a process, Learning for Well-being offers a common language for those nurturing the lives of children and young people.
