A pedagogical guide
for teachers and parents
Positive education and learning, at home or in school, requires a radical transformation if we are to prepare future generations to meet the challenges ahead.
It is up to us to inspire children to discover the greatness of Nature, the creative spirit within them, their emotions and their ability to imagine things that will one day become reality.
The pedagogy of Gunter’s Fables guides you to develop, step by step, the five intelligences of the child: academic knowledge, emotional intelligence, arts, systems making connections and the capacity to implement.
Develop the 5 intelligences
Deepen 10 to 50 themes classified by subject (physics, biology, history, mathematics, etc.)
Develop children’s empathy and their ability to recognize and express their emotions.
Develop multi-sensory learning, creativity and action through artistic activities.
Systems: making connections
Develop the ability to think, design, create and dream in (eco)-systems where everything is connected.
Capacity to implement
Take action to initiate change and develop the entrepreneurial seed in every child.
Help with language learning
Do you dream of your child learning to speak other languages with joy and ease ? All of Gunter’s Fables are written in 2 languages, always including English. Children and parents can thus out of curiosity: compare words, pronounce them and play jumping from one language to another.
A very effective method that has proven itself since students who have never practiced English have acquired more than a hundred vocabulary words after a year of study with Gunter’s Fables.

Books printed in France on Stone Paper
Did you know ?
Ecological and innovative, Stone Paper is a new material of mineral origin with unique characteristics. It is a material made with 100% recycled materials. It is composed of 80% limestone powder (offcuts and quarry waste) and 20% High Density Polyethylene (recycled HDPE – non-toxic resin for food use). It brings many benefits.
Turning waste into a resource that respects Nature is one of the principles of the Blue Economy.We are very proud of our printing company, the Breton company Armen Paper which promotes Stone Paper in France.

A new global educational approach
Gunter’s Fables are part of a planet-wide educational goal: that children interact together inspired by Nature to allow humanity to progress in peace and harmony. This is one of Gunter Pauli’s objectives through the projects of ZERI (Zero Emissions Research and Initiatives) as well as The Blue Economy and of course Gunter’s Fables.
Gunter’s Fables is also heavily developed into a nationwide program in China. Gunter Pauli thus accompanies tens of thousands of teachers in the use of Gunter’s Fables in the classroom.
Across the 5 continents, Gunter’s Fables have been distributed, adapted and translated thanks to the involvement of many parents and volunteers inspired by Prof. Pauli’s vision.
One of the emblems of these actions is the ship Porrima, whose name comes from the protective goddess of pregnant women. An experimental and innovative ship, having circumnavigated the planet several times with solar energy and which currently operates with a mixed energy using: water, wind and sun, all thanks to a Kite, hydrogen and solar panels. You will discover in Gunter’s Fables the stories of these initiatives and adventures.
Porrima was also highlighted on the poster dedicated to the program “United in diversity”! carried by the European Union, which works for education throughout Europe.
