EDUCATION AS NOURISHMENT:
OUR NEEDS IN VOLATILE TIMES
"Education means opening many doors." (Balkrishna Doshi, Pritzker Prize for Architecture 2018)
Education holds the potential for a good life and survival even in times of crisis. Knowledge alone is insufficient - it suffices neither for satisfactory coexistence nor for innovation or decent crisis management concerning personal, social or political problems.
Education takes place on many levels: in practicing arts, cooking and movement or in reflecting on philosophy, religion and ethics. Somatic intelligence, intuition and conflict ability as well as self-efficacy and responsibility can be learned.
Those who are educated instead of merely instructed understand the world better and live better lives. In times of volatility and critical change, we urgently need new educational perspectives.
These and other issues will be discussed at the 10th Symposium Dürnstein 2021 by Michael Köhlmeier, Timothy Snyder, Birgitta Fuchs, Gabriele Klein, Sebastian Pfütze, Leonie Ascone Michelis and others.
ATTENTION! Due to the coronavirus situation the Symposium Dürnstein 2021 will take place online and therefore free of charge.
We will broadcast live from the Minoritenkirche Krems/Stein (this venue offers the necessary technical requirements for online streaming) and offer opportunities for online exchange between all participants. Registration is now open.

What is education?
Michael Köhlmeier will give an introductory lecture. As a professional writer, he often follows traces that lead into the past, including ancient legends as well as stories about Christian saints or contemporary politicians. Knowing the past and drawing conclusions for the present: that is part of education.
Day 2 - March 5, 2021
- Education enables people to discover and develop their gifts and talents - for the benefit of themselves and all others. Take health, for example - statistics demonstrate that a healthy lifestyle very much depends on the level of education. This includes not only knowledge but also the experience of self-efficacy. Next to health, also the ability of enjoyment is a matter of education - because to enjoy oneself, one has to learn how to perceive differences. Education also means feeling at home in nature and appreciating its diversity - the wilderness. Sebastian Pfütze (Netzwerk Wildniswissen) will tell us how to do this.
Day 3 - March 6, 2021
- Those who know the history of Europe can shape its future, says the American historian Timothy Snyder. He will speak about this at the Symposium Dürnstein. Education is not to be equated with school knowledge - and yet it is only developed with knowledge as a prerequisite. Above all, education also needs structures - libraries, for example. Or even computers. Or music groups. Education needs culture, and culture needs education. A sustainable society must provide all its members as many pathways to education as possible. Informal opportunities for education are at least as important as the formal pathways (school, for example).
