Join the Global Bildung Festival

online on

September 21st

 

5-10 am and 5-10 pm

London daylight saving time (UTC+1)

 

People around the globe have so much potential,
yet only a small part of humanity gets the chance to unfold it.

Through bildung, everybody can become wiser and more empowered as a citizen,
and doors open to a richer and more meaningful life.
This can help all kinds of societies to evolve and become self-transforming and sustainable.

Meet your colleagues from education, cultural institutions, science, traditional communities, psychology, leadership development, think tanks, future studies, and various NGOs.

We won’t just be talking about bildung, we will be doing bildung: we will ask crucial questions and invite everybody to collaborate on the answers.

We are all here to learn,

including the organizers

and our co-creators around the globe.

5:30-6:45 am Parallel Sessions

Each parallel session will open with 2-3 ultra short introductions to the topic after which the majority of the time will be discussions in smaller groups. Each parallel session is also a call for action: How do we create awareness around this? and will conclude in a short wrap-up.

Why are we educating?

And how do we spark public debate about it?

Are schools just places for transfering knowledge and testing the success of the transfer, or do they serve a higher purpose? And in that case what? Join the discussion after these presentations:
