This series of occasional papers is on issues relevant to the purpose of the Research Initiative. While scholarly in nature, the papers published in this series are pragmatic in purpose: they are to serve practice and policy of school education and the professional and public discourse thereof.

What are the purposes of education and how do they relate to well-being? How can well-being be conceptualized? What are the relations between well-being and the natural environment? Check our Theoretical and Conceptual Research section for these and other discussions.
