The text presents an education model. A model built based in experiencies and practices and also an utopia not yet realized, but a model that is inspiring education in many places all over the world.
“Diffuse education” offers an alternative vision of our society, one in which the education of its youngest members is no longer a separate, specialist practice but, rather, increasingly becomes the responsibility of all members of the society and part of its life, taken as a whole. In this model, young children and adolescents are encouraged to involve themselves in real-world activities and tangible projects, and thus to learn and find agency in the flux of everyday life and participate in the opportunities it brings.
