What's Yggdrasil?

Here is what Wikipedia has to say on Yggdrasil:

In Norse mythology, Yggdrasil (from Old Norse Yggdrasill IPA: [ˈyɡːˌdrasilː]; meaning "Ygg's (Odin's) horse"[1]) is the world tree. Yggdrasil is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources; and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In both sources, Yggdrasil is an immense ash tree that is central and considered very holy. The Æsir go to Yggdrasil daily to hold their courts. The branches of Yggdrasil extend far into the heavens, and the tree is supported by three roots that extend far away into other locations; one to the well Urðarbrunnr in the heavens, one to the spring Hvergelmir, and another to the well Mímisbrunnr. Creatures live within Yggdrasil, including the harts Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór, and an unnamed eagle, and the wyrm Níðhöggr. Scholarly theories have been proposed about the etymology of the name Yggdrasill, the potential relation to the trees Mímameiðr and Læraðr, and the sacred tree at Uppsala.

Our Philosophy on “Yggdrasil”

Apart from the fact that we like the sound of the name- we also like the meaning “Tree of life” or “Tree of Wisdom” or “Tree of Knowledge”. Our Tree of Knowledge is the wisdom of light that shine beyond the comprehension of our own limitation. A light where wisdom flourish and where experience can grow as far as the horizon can see. A wisdom where ignorant are foolish and the wise are wiser. The wisdom to know is to resources. Our wisdom is our knowledge of resources and our resources is our gift of treasure that we will never forget. While working with Education you can never say you know it all, it is a life’s journey. It is like the growth of a tree, never straight but branching out, ever changing but yet always the same. Our main Philosophy concerning “Yggdrasil” generated from that notion.  It is dedicated to online knowledge sharing platform on Teaching Programmes of Education around the world in the ePLANETe system. 

The “Yggdrasil(New)” is the latest version of Yggdrasil. The REEDS International has established this resource Platform for teaching programmes , included potential and existing  courses that are part of Master Programmes provided by partner University or Institutions, i.e. Université Paris-Saclay,. Using a collaborative learning platform, the programs prepare the new generations to meet the challenges of understanding, decision and action for sustainable development of Innovation and Management of territorial management & development. The programs help students develop the skills they need to advance in an integrated way of relationships between the economy, climate, the physical environment and natural resource use, including questions of long time horizons, social justice and political process in the context of deep uncertainty, irreversibility and system complexity .
