Definitions of belonging vary across different disciplines. But despite the differences in perspectives, each field recognizes the value of belonging particularly in schools. School belonging is associated with positive social and academic outcomes and overall well-being. However, a large proportion of students worldwide have a low sense of belonging and many feel that they do not belong. This chapter will discuss how belonging is defined, its importance for students and the issues related to school belonging through an innovative transdisciplinary lens. This chapter is the first of its kind to integrate the concepts of different transdisciplinary conversations to improve the understanding of school belonging and present potential solutions through collaborations among researchers and educators in different fields.
