What would education look like in a more beautiful world? The Earth Charter captures it. It would "integrate into formal education and life-long learning the knowledge, value, and skills needed for a sustainable way of life."
Moreover, this education would empower children and youth to contribute to a more sustainable world; it would emphasize the arts and humanities as well as the sciences in formal education; it would recognize the importance of spiritual and moral education for sustainable living; and much of it would occur outside, integrating hands-on learning in local contexts with an exploration of ideas.
