In our ideal world, as many people as possible are in touch with themselves and in connection with others. As a collective, they address personal-professional and societal challenges.
To the great desire for more space within education for the development of people, we saw the answer in Bildung: actively, consciously and ethically relating to your inner self, the other and the world. That is why we develop programs and offer training, coaching and advice around personal-professional development and social responsibility.
Is an ideal image.
We are not an existing institution and have no fixed place: the university of the 21st century is an invitation and creative playground to build together with The Bildung Network on the ideal of teaching, learning & development.
Doesn't revolve around numbers.
We test the development of self-knowledge, connecting power, creativity and discipline to function well as a person and professional and live a meaningful life.
Don't just come in.
We are only open to people who have the will to be socially responsible in connection with themselves and others.
Only makes the teacher more important.
We see the teacher as an inspiration and facilitator who gives you the tools and confidence to help you arrive at the right judgments, decisions and actions in an abundance of information.
Provides education that touches you.
We offer inspiration and create synergy between the painful and liberating process of personal and social transformation.
Is for mbo, hbo and wo.
We look beyond educational level and bring together diverse life worlds. Person education reinforced with theoretical and practical knowledge is essential to achieve the best version of yourself.
Is for every stage of your life.
We see development as a crucial human need, also during and after your professional life. Slowing down in the rat race creates space for new awareness, skills and growth perspective.
Has no fixed place.
We see opportunities to develop yourself everywhere, as long as you train an open and attentive attitude. Our network is everywhere, from cultural venues to b-corps and from educational institutions to the public sector.
Looks critically at existing (power) structures.
We provide space for underexposed perspectives and have difficult conversations to explore what we want to preserve or renew in our future.
What building block would you like to add?
Further building we do together with everyone who thinks with us, follows our programs or collaborates with us. This is how we develop the building blocks of the 21st century university together with you.
