In early 2011, the section for universities and research of Finland's Ministry of Education and Culture became convinced that Veijo Baltzar's pedagogical methodology of Intercultural Experiential Education expresses a way of thinking that is truly new and important for developing society that should be developed further.
Upon the initiative of the Drom Association and Veijo Baltzar, the HUMAK University of Applied Sciences carried out a pilot project (Baltzar-KKI-HUMAK) from May 2011 to March 2012 for the purpose of studying Intercultural Experiential Education. Veijo Baltzar served as the pedagogical leader of the project.
“Towards Experiential Philosophy” is a polemic work addressing the present state and challenges of multicultural Europe. Baltzar maintains that in its current mental and intellectual crisis Europe must face its blind spots with regard to minority cultures and education leading to inequality. In the book, Baltzar seeks to offer European society tools for constructing functioning pluralism and for halting the increasing marginalization of young people.
