Swiss Bildung – How does Bildung become aware of itself?

Date(s) - 08/05/2021
4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us on May 8th to discuss Bildung in Switzerland.

As a group, we will engage in “serious play” and approach Bildung from many different perspectives.

Our general inquiry will circle around the question of “How does Bildung become aware of itself?”.

Some guiding questions will be:

What is Bildung? How is it different from plain old “education”?
What are examples of Bildung in Switzerland?
How can we reintroduce the notion of Bildung back into society?
How can our culture learn to value Bildung?

Lastly, we will share our main take-aways on Sunday morning with the rest of the European Bildung Network.

We would be delighted for you to join us!
