Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school" - striving to new forms of education which is based in life and real experience is the only way to plan the seeds of knowledge for sustainable future of human mankind.

For me education is a process of exchange between the mentor and her/his pupils, in which the former participates in creating an environment that instills and encourages the desire of knowledge, nourishes curiosity and teaches multiple methods of research, while guiding the students on their own path of learning.
My ideal view of education would be: Optimal education would create enough space for the students to play and find their own sense of agency and fully engages internal motivation, while at the same time it uses a framework that directs them into developing skills and knowledge that are relevant to their context and society.

Communication is the key to guaranteeing education of excellence. When we work on the acoustic design of a school, our role is to make sure that the environment becomes one of learning, interactivity and self-development, which is very much impacted by noise.

Education is the process of facilitating learning. In this regard, indirect teaching with learning from the environment is an effective method in which enjoying and learning are together. This is inquiry-based, thus, creating questions and persuading to find the answers are the main parts of this method.

Education is not just about gaining knowledge, but also learning how to think effectively. How we think has a huge impact upon our health, including psychologically. We must treat the brain like a muscle and ensure we keep it sharp throughout our lives through education.

Education is the key to our continued development. We educate ourselves to learn new knowledge, new skills, new facts. It is about discovering and exploring, which is facilitated by a suitable environment. Education is an individual experience, and we all on our own unique journeys.

Conventional education systems are preparing kids for job, but not for life. Why can’t learning, working and simply, living, be more fun? More creative? More engaging? In a real sense of the world we are not learning what matters. And definitely not learning enough of what matters.
