Since the beginning of the 20th century, experts, scientists, explorers, artists and researchers have drastically altered our views on matter, the living, Nature, health, education, work, human nature and the origins of mankind.
Our understanding of the Living lies at the source of how we behave, organize, and create. It defines the way we interact with the world and with each other; determines the humans we become and the societies we build. The latest and deepest discoveries from each of these fields provide opportunities for deep questioning, wonder, and inspiration.
GENESIS éducation focuses on sharing these discoveries.
GENESIS éducation offers its services to the association
LE PHARE – Lighthouse
for the spreading of this knowledge.

"Every culture is a singular expression of human
imagination and heart, a unique answer to a fundamental question: "What does it mean to be

Wade Davis - anthropologist
