The Positive Education Action-Research (PEAR) Laboratory was an experimental program run at the University of Toliara in SW Madagascar between October 2012 June 2015. This blog, Mythic Minds was an early social media effort to communicate our work, it too has now closed.
Our civic ecology approach has proven a valuable strategy for educational development in this region, and yet the organizational structure of the PEAR Lab has become outdated for our future plans. For this reason, PEAR Lab founders - and some exciting new team members, have re-formulated as the Berlin-based NGO, Big Red Earth (www.BigRedEarth.org).
The PEAR Lab website will remain open as an archive of the project.
