GEA is on a journey to discover what makes spaces of learning happy around the world. On each of our curated experiences, we have been bringing this to you all along: the joy of movement in the schools of Uganda, the empowerment and ownership of students in Finland, the efforts to build community and space where many belong in Cambodia and New Zealand, and the peace that interacting with our natural world brings us in Puerto Rico and the Southwest. Our programs are designed to help you discover what makes these particular classrooms and communities thrive and what we can take home with us to build a more meaningful and happy life for ourselves.
