People & Planet Lab

The laboratory focuses on a variety of research studies in the field of education, with an emphasis on exploring the human aspect in the contexts of mobility, identity, and agency. Additionally, it examines the environmental aspect in education, including place-based education and global citizenship education.

We strive to explore and understand the complex interplay between human factors, such as mobility, identity, and agency, and their impact on education. By conducting innovative and interdisciplinary research, we aim to contribute valuable insights that will shape the future of education.

Our lab is committed to investigating the role of education in promoting social and individual development, with a particular focus on place-based education and global citizenship. Through our research, we aim to empower educators and policymakers to create inclusive and transformative learning environments that foster critical thinking, cultural awareness, and social responsibility.

We envision a future where education is not only about imparting knowledge but also about nurturing the holistic growth of individuals. Our lab seeks to bridge the gap between theory and practice by collaborating with educators, students, and community stakeholders. By fostering partnerships and engaging in knowledge exchange, we aim to develop evidence-based strategies and interventions that enhance educational experiences for all learners.

In addition, we aspire to be a hub for collaboration and knowledge dissemination, organizing conferences, workshops, and seminars to facilitate the exchange of ideas among researchers, practitioners, and policymakers. Through these activities, we aim to create a vibrant community of scholars dedicated to advancing the field of education and addressing pressing societal challenges.

Ultimately, our vision is to contribute to the transformation of education systems, empowering learners to navigate a rapidly changing world, embrace diversity, and become active global citizens. With a focus on human and environmental factors, our lab strives to make a lasting impact on education policy, practice, and research in Israel and beyond.
