The Universidad de la Tierra (UniTierra) was created in Oaxaca, Mexico, as an alternative to formal education and as a space for free learning. There is no fixed curriculum or teachers, and control is in the hands of the learners. The institute is set up with five main branches: alternative technologies, appropriate agriculture, popular communication and media, alternative medicines, and alternative research on social science. UniTierra has become a base for reclaiming the freedom to learn, in which the students take direction and control of their own learning from the very first day, where all assume that learning and teaching activities are practiced through joy and friendship. Learning is mainly learning from the world, by doing what the person wants to learn, with regular reflection on the practice, through study and reading circles, and seminars. This video, produced in 2005, features UniTierra founder Gustavo Esteva and a number of students and other participants discussing their experiences in creating this unique learning space.
