Next Scandinavia

European Bildung Network

Next Scandinavia is my own company, Nordic Bildung is the think tank I co-founded with a wonderful group of people. Here I do my thinking and writing, I organize and host workshops and conferences, and I develop thought provoking keynotes for a global audience.

In the European Bildung Network, we promote bildung across the continent. Networks on other continents are in the pipeline…

Looking very much forward to hearing from you.

Keep Growing

Report to the Club of Rome, 2020

Bildung is moral and emotional maturity. Bildung is also to have the education and knowledge necessary to thrive in your society; bildung is to be deeply embedded in culture and community while having the autonomy to carve your own path in life. Bildung is always personal and unique

Testimonials

Don’t take my word for it – here’s what people say:

Eminently sharp, well presented and with a dash of satire. LRA grasps the very big narratives and elegantly links them to the current context for the presentation and our conference: educational guidance during a paradigm shift. LRA’s introductory keynote gave us a start, which lifted the entire conference right from the beginning.

Pia Vigh

Youth Guidance Denmark

When several students announce excitedly that they have plenty of notes from the presentation that they need to investigate further, I know that the presentation has been a success.

Merete Østergaard

Scandinavian Design College

This was so exciting, I just kept knitting and now the sock is too long…

Wonderful Grandma
