Service-Learning, global learning, intercultural learning, peace education, human rights education, empathy and ethical values trainings, environmental education, earth literacy... have been present in many schools for decades, driven by individual teachers, and today, in the curricular frameworks. This can be amplified. As mentioned in #5 Education for Sustainable Development there are global, supranational programs to uopgrade education for the 21st Century, and most national curricula demand the same progressive learning culture and skills. Society asks for it, and so does the world of progressive economy. So, youth have an obligation to attend school, but they also have the right - and probably more than a moral right - to have access to a LEARNING CULTURE (that's more than education) that allows them to fulfill the core purpose of school: enabling the young generation to become active citizens of a libertarian-democratic society; a society that today also needs to be sustainable, in a global family of nations. Until this can be taught formally in classrooms (which is probably never possible) the least to do is to provide youth access through Informal Learning Environments, allowing for self-organised learning activities.
