one-year-on-a-bike-from-amsterdam-to-singapore

Publisher : Gestalen

The title says it all: one man, one bike, one long ride, the adventure, the pleasure, and the pain. It is simultaneouslya travelogue and visual journey. Martijn Doolaard traded the convenience of a car and the distractions of daily life for a cross-continental cycling journey: a biped adventure that would take him from Amsterdam to Singapore. Leaving behind repetitive routines, One Year on a Bike indulges in slow travel, the subtlety of a gradually changing landscape, and the lessons learned through traveling. Venturing through Eastern European fields of yellow rapeseed to the intimate hosting culture and community in Iran, One Year on a Bike is a vivid chronicle of what can happen when the norm is pointedly replaced by exceptional self-discoveries and beautiful scenery. Doolaard shares the gear and knowledge that made his trip possible alongside the passionate curiosities that served as his impetus.

Auteur :  Jordy Meow

Editeur : JonGlez

Généralement, le Japon est considéré comme un pays où le monde moderne et les traditions anciennes se combinent harmonieusement, d’une manière à la fois surprenante et fascinante. Pourtant, bien que le rythme soutenu du changement technologique, social et culturel qu’a connu le pays au cours du XXe siècle ait permis au Japon de progresser dans tous les domaines, nombre d’établissements, d’industries, voire, même, de villes, ont été désertés. Jordy Meow a exploré ces lieux oubliés et, par ses photographies, dévoile un monde perdu qui, pourtant, fut récemment en plein essor. Abandoned Japan constitue donc une source

UNESCO

Early childhood care and education (ECCE) has become a key concern for education policy-makers and stakeholders. There is mounting research evidence on its benefits for children’s capacities and educational achievements as well as its critical role in realizing equitable, quality education and lifelong learning. Addressing the themes of investment rationales, equity and quality, this book features various lessons from research and experience from different continents. It argues for reversing the trend of ‘investing against evidence’ so that children - and especially the disadvantaged ones - and societies can reap the proven benefits of quality ECCE.
