Bildung – Keep Growing

Published 2020 – Bildung – Keep Growing encourages us to rethink our approach to knowledge exchange, education and life-long learning as anchors for holistic economic and political development at the community, national and global levels.

Bildung is a German concept that combines moral and emotional development with education. It was also the foundation for the Danish folk-high-schools central to the cultural and economic development of modern day Denmark. The new report to the Club of Rome describes the complex interplay between individual development, learning and collective culture and makes the case for folk-bildung as a uniting force that can play an instrumental role in restoring our societies and rebuilding their economies in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.
