Sustainability: What′s Love Got to Do with It?
Abstract: Too much of education, especially following the Western Enlightenment model and its increased use of scientific, quantifiable metrics, has seemed to completely forget that love and emotional intelligence have everything to do with what and how well the human child learns. In a globalizing society facing shared environmental and social crises of existential proportions, this forgotten understanding is fatal to real hopes of education for sustainability and healthy human and planetary life. Love is simply too critical an emotion to understand and incorporate into education, and it has been too long left out in the cold. But cold it has been for the human mind focusing on only rational/objective and emotion-denying forms of learning and intelligence, creating minds unmoved by the thus un-felt facts of an increasingly globally warming and more confused world.

The international Transformative Education Forum founded in Geneva in 2010 addressed this very issue of what a new pedagogy of human care, ethics and spirituality – the pedagogy of human love – would actually look like in any single community and in an increasingly interconnected, diverse world. This gathered group from five continents and all walks of life, especially educational practitioners, worked to address this lack of cohesive human problem solving resulting from fragmented disciplines of outdated thinking that had led to increasingly measurable harmful human and planetary outcomes. From Geneva, Switzerland to Monterey, California, to Bangalore, India to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the UN Conference on Sustainable Development ″Rio + 20″ itself, TEF educators and policy thinkers came together to address a new pedagogy reaffirming love and the necessary emotional and social intelligences that define it. Together they developed twelve Principles of Transformative Education and gathered and created models of these Principles, that are critical to re-defining exactly what that kind of love would necessarily have to do with transforming these old paradigms of educational dysfunction into a caring, thriving world.
