Among programmes being developed to promote good health for the population of Austria, plans are underway to create a Maharishi Health School in Vienna.
Health schools are one of the main topics for the future in education in developed countries, mainly because the health status of the young generation is becoming dramatically worse, experts say.
Statistics reveal that about 12-17 per cent of young people are involved with smoking and alcohol, have ADHD symptoms, or are overweight. Some studies have shown that from these factors alone, the current health system could collapse in about 20-40 years, if nothing is done to improve the situation.
The Maharishi Health School in Vienna is envisioned as a means to address this critical need in public health, starting with primary school children and focusing on health and development of consciousness.
Plans include establishing the school on 3,000 square metres (3,588 square yards) of available land. Phase I would entail construction of the main building, including a school with four classrooms. Also planned is a Maharishi Ayur-Veda health centre connected to the school, with three treatment rooms, a seminar room, and a health shop, restaurant, and teahouse.
