At this time of year, our kindergarteners also have to muster courage to jump across the blazing St. John's fire.

Florian Osswald speaks in his lecture at the World Teachers' Conference about an “entrepreneurial risk”, referring to school communities “in which the strength of the individual soul and the courage to encounter the other, lives.”
