human diversity

instill in them an awareness of
the similarities and
interdependence of all people.

To learn to live together:

understand other people's
reactions by looking at things
from their point of view

spirit of empathy is
encouraged in schools, it
has a positive effect on
young persons' social
behaviour for the rest of

Rights and Responsibilities

The Commission powerfully reasserted a fundamental principle:


education should contribute to
every person's complete
development - mind and body,
intelligence, sensitivity, aesthetic
appreciation and spirituality.

All people should receive in their


childhood and youth an education
that equips them to develop their
own independent, critical way of
thinking and judgment so that they
can make up their own minds on
the best courses of action in the
different circumstances in their lives

Learning to Be:
The aim of development
is the complete fulfillment
of man, in all the richness
of his personality,

The Commission embraces one of


the complexity of his forms of
expression and his various
commitments
as individual,
member of a family and of a
community,
citizen
producer,
inventor of techniques and
creative dreamer

This human development, is a


dialectic process which is based
both on self-knowledge and on
relationships with other people.
