Kurt Hahn

"There is more in you than you think" is an inscription found on the wall of a family home in Belgium before World War II.

It became the motto for the school Kurt Hahn founded in Britain, Gordonstoun, and the leitmotiv of his philosophy: that each of us has more courage, more strength and more compassion than we would ever have fathomed.

Kurt Hahn's calling in life was to help people around the world realize this truth about themselves.

This Web site is dedicated to his philosophy and the role of his ideas in the future of experiential education. We hope that you find inspiration here as well as the resources to learn more about him.
