Saturday 13:00-15:00 CET
Bildung, unlocking the spirit; How do we do it?
Pan-European online conference on Zoom.
Welcome to the 3rd European Bildung Day. This time, we will focus on bildung best practices in and for the 21st Century.
The keynote speakers will take us on a journey through time and the development of bildung initiatives:
The 17th Century teacher who realized that education must be based on what the pupils already understand.
How stubborn peasants changed Denmark by studying history, mythology and the arts in the 1800s.
Imagine a cross-over between Burning Man and a rural folk high school—in the US in 1874.
Norwegians and Swedes have self-organized study circles since the early 1900s; get their secrets…
University students found something important missing in their academic education and invented it themselves: a bildung academy!
Sustainable well-being depends on foresight and bildung; welcome to Sitra, a think-and-do tank under the Finnish Parliament, and Sitra’s Bildung+ project.
A folk high school and bildung movement of the 21st century is in the making…
Nadja did an excellent job hosting European Bildung Day 2020, and we are thrilled that she will be joining us again.
