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.
We are all here to learn, including the organizers and our co-creators around the globe.
On September 21st, they will be hosting the first ever Global Bildung Festival. It is online, and to make it accessible to participants from around the globe there will be two events:
Global Bildung Day First Event 5-10am UTC / London time
Global Bildung Day Second Event 5-10pm UTC / London time
Goals of the Festival
This will be more of a global conversation than a standard online conference; their goals is for everybody to participate in as many bildung conversations as possible with as many bildung people from around the globe as possible. Their aim is to spark a global conversation about bildung and to host similar events on equinox twice a year, every year.
You will have an opportunity to meet colleagues from education, cultural institutions, science, traditional communities, psychology, leadership development, think tanks, future studies, and various NGOs.
What is bildung?
The word Bildung does not exist in English and they therefore use the German word, which entails many different aspects of the formation and transformation of their inner world. Here is the European Bildung Network's definition:
"Bildung is the combination of the education and knowledge necessary to thrive in your society, and the moral and emotional maturity to both be a team player and have personal autonomy.
Bildung is also knowing your roots and being able to imagine the future."
