New book by Lene Rachel Andersen
Did you ever wonder why the Nordic countries are so prosperous, peaceful, good for business, and happy?
They have a secret and it was invented in Denmark: folk-bildung.
Bildung is a German concept that combines moral and emotional development with education, but it was a Danish pastor and a teacher who democratized it, invented folk-high-schools and laid the foundation for some of the most successful countries in the world.
Bildung; Keep Growing tells the story of this Danish invention and suggests a path towards global folk-bildung and a wiser, more meaningful, happier future.
A report to the Club of Rome
The book has been accepted as a Report to the Club of Rome.
This book is a thoughtful and thought-provoking guide to enable humanity to re-focus on what is essential and to understand life-long learning, education and thinking as a unifying force.
The video was originally made for our Kickstarter campaign; we reached our campaign goal and got enough money to print the book.
