School of Life for the 21st Century

Call for Action

Call for Action

We seek collaboration with scholars, educators and activists to further investigate the relevance of Janusz Korczak’s The School of Life, and other writings, in the 21st century — and the many global challenges facing humanity.


We invite you to submit abstracts for the publication of a scholarly volume that will examine contemporary issues in society and education through Janusz Korczak’s writing and pedagogy. The volume will bring together a variety of disciplinary, conceptual and empirical perspectives in order to offer a novel evaluation of contemporary issues in education.


We are working to set up an international working group composed of scholars and educators who will work together to develop and formulate guiding principles for a new kind of curriculum that will address various aspects of — and potential reforms to — education in the 21st century.


We invite you to take part in a “viral” reading of Janusz Korczak, one that revives his life, texts, and ideas and illuminates their relevance for our time. We envision the production of a multilingual and multimedia “public reading” that will include the diversity of global society today — young and old; artists and scientists; civil and civic — from countries all over the world.
