About Lene Rachel Andersen

Photo by Jakob Boserup

I am an economist, author, futurist, philosopher and bildung activist. After studying business economy for three years, I worked as a substitute 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 20 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), edited by Tomas Björkman, Metamodernity (2019), Bildung (2020), What is Bildung? (2021), and Libertism (2022).

I am a full member of the Club of Rome, President of the Copenhagen based think tank Nordic Bildung and co-founder of the Global Bildung Network.
