What is meant by education?

Bildung ist die Kombination aus Wissen, Intellektualität, Kultiviertheit und persönlicher Entwicklung eines Menschen. Sie gibt unter anderem vor, was richtig und was falsch ist – und fördert Eigenständigkeit und Selbstbestimmung durch die gedankliche Auseinandersetzung mit der umgegebenen Lebenswelt.

Why is education so important?

Everyone should have access to educational opportunities. Because this is how they can develop personally and enable themselves and others to lead fulfilling lives. Through education, we as a global society are able to live together peacefully and pass on our knowledge to future generations.

Where does education begin?

The formation of a person begins at birth and continues throughout life. Even as an infant, one is directly active and communicative. So life is a constant learning process, so to speak, which starts with the second one sees the light of day.

Use educational quotes as a constant source of motivation

Education and knowledge are closely intertwined with positive character traits like Curiosity, inquisitiveness, openness or interest together. Knowing that you don't yet know much about a particular topic like the climate change knows, for example, is a good quality that should make you rather inquisitive first and eager to discuss only in the second step. We need to change the world - and our education is the key.
