We do not solve the problems we have; we solve the problems we understand.
Which means that there are a lot of problems that we do not solve. Either because we do not engage with them, or because we misunderstand them and make them worse. Sometimes the problems are technically complicated, but more often they are complex. In complex problems, several problems interact and impact each other, and solving one problem just leads to other problems elsewhere.
We need to change our perspective. We need education that allows us to deal with complexity and we need bildung that allows us to be emotionally comfortable about it.
This requires a completely different approach to education, and we are going to discuss that at the European Bildung Day in Vilnius and online May 8-9.
