Professional Approaches To Housework 

Taking a professional approach to housework can enhance the wellbeing of present and future generations. Using this approach to competently complete housework with an ecological awareness contributes to creating sustainable societies through the individuals it touches at home. The Sustainable Living ebook discusses these ideas in a compilation of presentations from the third Excellence in the Home Conference.

FROM HOUSE TO HOME - December 2011 

The Architecture of the Home 

From House to Home. The book examines how anthropological aspects, the use of management skills, and, of course, architecture and design all contribute to transforming a house into a home. Its task is to explore the difference between a house and a home: by what extraordinary process does a building, a house, become a home?


A Photographic Project by Elizabeth Handy / Words by Charles Handy 

The home, we believe, is the real schoolroom for life, with the family its teachers. It is in the home that we learn the personal values, attitudes and behaviours that will stand us in good stead throughout our lives, picking them up by watching those around us. Schools can´t teach such things too well. Families can and do, often unwittingly, through example.

Where Theory and Practice Meet 

This book demonstrates a bold theme: that what goes on in the home is at least as important as, and probably more important than, what goes on in national parliaments or the United Nations council chamber. “Domestic Science” – cooking, shopping making beds, child rearing, and cleaning up – is something to be discussed as seriously, by qualified experts and high-profile international researchers, as global warming, terrorism, and the plight of Africa.
