During my stay in Faberllull in Olot, I will work on an essay book that wants to reflect on education and learning linked to life, and in this case interweaving the reflection with my own personal experiences. Learning to learn, yes, but also to know and to do, and to be and to live together, to finally learn to become, from a vision of freedom as the capacity to choose to define one's life project.
