Sweden's first holistic school!
This is an Holistic school for a sustainable life.
We started this amazing and innovative school project, first we started a preschool and in august the school. With this school we want to set a new path for all the generations to come. To live in a sustainable way in connection with nature, ourselves and each other, because it's the only thing that will allow our planet and our children's children to live in a healthy society.
people from all over the world have stayed here in Molkom , connected through the local course center. They have made themselves a life here, starting businesses and projects, creating families and having children, enriching and developing the whole society, people who are looking for an alternative way of life in an attempt to be true to their inner selves, to live closer to nature and to minimize consumerism and stress. Our school is the where this community's children go and has a new approach to pedagogy and learning. 4 years ago we started a preschool and in August started our primary school with classes F-9 (ages 6 - 16).

We have a great location for the school in an old village school here in Molkom, Värmland. Your contribution and work will provide the children with a beautiful indoor and outdoor environment.
