EDUCATION AS NOURISHMENT:
OUR NEEDS IN VOLATILE TIMES

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, Gabriele Klein, Sebastian Pfütze, Leonie Ascone Michelis and others.

The Symposium Dürnstein 2021 will take place in person from March 4-6, 2021, despite the current circumstances.
ATTENTION! Due to the coronavirus situation the Symposium Dürnstein 2021 will take place in the Dominican Church in Krems.
