From the website:

Nordic Bildung has five tasks:

  1. To develop new models, ideas and visions for societies and the globe of the future.
  2. To share these with as many people as possible in order for them to challenge our thinking and come up with better solutions.
  3. To provide knowledge and venues that can empower people in order for them to make the best possible changes and adjustments in their own lives, in their societies and for the globe as a whole.
  4. To reach people in all walks of life.
  5. To contribute to a flourishing planet, flourishing societies and circumstances that allow individuals to flourish too.

Nordic Bildung is the combination of future studies, a think tank and folk-bildung.

In order to handle the technological development and planetary challenges wisely, we need a deeper understanding of ourselves and our inventions throughout our societies.

Nordic Bildung is about civic empowerment and a humane future, and Nordic Bildung builds on the Scandinavian folk-bildung tradition that lifts society from the bottom.

Description:

From Lene’s personal website:

I am an economist, author, futurist, philosopher and Bildung activist. After studying business economy for three years, I worked as a temp teacher before I studied theology. During my studies, I wrote entertainment for Danish television until I decided to quit theology, become a fulltime writer and focus on technological development, big history and the future of humanity.

Since 2005, I have written 15 books and received two Danish democracy awards: Ebbe Kløvedal-Reich Democracy Baton (2007) and Døssing Prisen, the Danish librarians’ democracy prize (2012).

Among my books are The Nordic Secret (2017), co-authored by Club of Rome member Tomas Björkman Metamodernity (2019) and Bildung (2020).

I am a full member of the Club of Rome and one of the co-founders of the Copenhagen based think tank Nordic Bildung and the European Bildung Network.
