Some of you attended last year’s 9th International Conference on the Educational Legacy of Janusz Korczak in Israel. Below you will find an invitation to continue the work that was started there. Please read the letter below carefully and see how you can contribute to this worthwhile cause.

Dear Colleagues Korczakians,
I hope this email finds you well.
It is my pleasure to share with you the Call for Action (http://www.school-of-life.
The initiative follows a major conference held last year at Tel Aviv University on Janusz Korczak’s legacy and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. (http://www.school-of-life.
It is our feeling that the themes we explored, under the umbrella, “A School of Life for the 21st Century,” have been made even more critical in this time of change. We are seeking partners to help us engage scholars, educators, thinkers and innovators and to explore together new frameworks of thinking and cooperation, based on the educational and philosophical legacy of Janusz Korczak. This may take the form of a published volume, policy paper, and/or social initiative. We invite you to explore our Call for Action, share with your colleagues, and submit a proposal (the deadline is September 15, 2020). If you would like to speak more generally about our initiative, we would be more than happy to.
