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.

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.
