   School of Life - School of Happiness


In school we're taught to be smarter.
In church we're taught to be more moral.
At work we're taught to be more successful.
The School of Life teaches you to be more happy!

Many scientific researches, as well as our life experiences show us that true and lasting happiness does not come through education, kindness, success, wealth or health. We know the through cause of happiness and how to make it happen and last.

A lot of people have it backwards thinking that they'll be happy when they get something, or find a better job, receive a raise or praise, or when their kids grow up, or when they go on a vacation and so on. The truth is the complete opposite - happiness is not a consequence, but the cause. Only when we're happy we can get a better job, a raise or anything else. Happiness guarantees success, success doesn’t guarantee happiness.

Happiness is not something we can buy, inherit, inject or learn. You do not search nor find happiness. Happiness is practiced! There are certain habits that guarantee permanent happiness. These habits are achieved in our program in a few simple steps with the help of certain virtues, techniques and tools.

We offer a the know-how for achieving happiness through our educational programs for children and adults. All members of our association, no matter if they attend our program or not, receive a multimedia happiness package as a gift, so we suggest you join us » (Sorry, for now it is only available in Croatian language.)

Goals of The School of Life

 

European council in Lisabon made a strategic goal for the European Union: to be the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world, in order to strengthen employment, economic reform and social cohesion.
To achieve that, the European systems of education have to adjust to the demands of a society which is based on knowledge. One of the main components of this approach is to promote new basic skills and key competences which are acquired through  lifelong learning.

Within the goals set by the European council and the European commission, The School of Life has set its own strategic goal: to contribute to the development of a more competent and dynamic economy based on knowledge and virtues by training people to achieve a better integration of their abilities and broader social goals and so contribute to the economical growth of own nation and beyond.

This strategic goal, The School of Life achieves through promoting European dimension of education which includes a training in basic skills and key competences, virtues, entrepreneurship and healthy habits, all the while advocating a shift of emphasis from teaching to learning.

The School of Life accepts its responsibility in creating conditions and providing all the necessary opportunities for harmonious development and life of young people in a safe and  favorable environment. On that principle, and in terms of our government's National Program of Activities for Children and Youth, The School of Life sets basic goals of its programs for children and youth:

  • to promote the social values which can inspire young people to actively think and achieve safe and prosperous future in a society of equal opportunities, social solidarity and socially valued creativity;
  • to stimulate young people with an adequate education to actively contribute in resolving social, personal and generational problems by including them in the process of decision-making in all its stages;
  • to promote education and activities that constitute a civil society, to nurture peaceful solution of social conflicts;
  • to promote development of innovative contents, services, pedagogical methods and a lifelong learning approach, which are based on information-communication technologies;
  • to promote and honor volunteer work, activities beneficial to society, solidarity, respect of rights and acceptance of differences;
  • to provide an open and modern system of informal education and specialization for everyone as well as to encourage social advancement towards knowledge and skills;
  • to offer young people a chance to gain new skills, virtues and knowledge as well as perfecting the existing ones through lifelong learning so as to enable them for a complete and responsible participation in all aspects of the society and to achieve a productive employment, social security, an independent and healthy life as well as participation in decision-making;
  • to ensure the equal life opportunities and the reduction of risks of social exclusion and inequities for young people that live in especially tough circumstances, young people with a disabilities and all those who are in any way in an unfavorable position;
  • to respect the needs of young people for an autonomous cultural expression, productive use of free time as well as sports and recreation in the function of quality living;
  • to stimulate cultural, touristic and educational mobility of young people which expands their horizons, opens communication with the world and makes it possible to meet new standards, patterns, methods and ways of social activity;
  • to support measures and activities oriented towards integrating healthy life habits and life styles as well as the improvement of the health of young people with a special emphasis on the prevention of addictions, chronic non-transmittable deasease, mental diseases and behavioral issues;
  • to encourage young people to actively participate in the programs meant for protection and improvement of environment and sustainable development.

Snowhite lived with 7 men. Jasmin and Aladdin were in an illicit relationship. Tarzan walked around half-naked and talked with monkeys. Sleeping beauty ended up with the first man who kissed her. Hansel and Gretel barely escaped the witch who wanted to eat them. Cinderella snuck out from home at night to go to a party. Pinocchio was a liar, and Robin Hood a thief....These were the stories they read to us when we were kids, so why do they wonder what kind of a generation we are!
