Interview with Elio D’Anna

Intelligentsia Magazine – Turkey

Tòfig Husein-zadeh: My first question is: What is the most important message that you would like to pass on to the next generation of leaders?

Elio D ‘Anna: We need to pass on the message about a new kind of education, what I call the Second Education. We have to turn today’s educational techniques and out of date teachings upside down. We absolutely need to have an educational evolution. This is very, very important.

Tofig Husein-zadeh: Could you elaborate more on the Second Education?

Elio D ‘Anna: The second education means that you don’t learn from outside anymore. You don’t need it. You have to discover within each young student something that is unique that has to come out. This is something that we have neglected for centuries.
