ABSTRACT. Partnership as a term is used in various ways in education. Partnerships exist between teachers and students, teachers and parents, teachers and colleagues, schools and communities, as well as between educational institutions, governments and society as a whole. Drawing on Schmid’s philosophical concept of the art of living, this article explores the notions of partnership and friendship in relation to the other, society, humanity and our environment on a global scale. The aim is to explore the meaning and role of these terms and concepts in the context of an education for life. The education for life concept, as understood in this article, is based on Schmid’s art of living concept and revisits the idea of personal development and well-being instead of focusing solely on economical advancement. pp. 92–101
