Educationalist, Author and Co-founder of Action for Happiness

Fed up with our education system, which he calls target-oriented and ‘sick’, Sir Anthony Seldon set out to teach children how to ‘lead lives full of meaning and love’ instead. Seldon, a prominent political historian and commentator, took his Buddhism-meets-school philosophy and successfully applied it to Wellington College, even introducing ‘stillness sessions’ at the top school. Seldon is co-founder of Action for Happiness, which passionately promotes happiness and the development of the ‘all-round child.’
