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.

The two co-presidents, Sandrine Dixson-Declève and Mamphela Ramphele, write in their foreword:

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.
