Gerald Hüther

The Corona Crisis has exposed long-standing problems in our schools: Far too many children and young people have been increasingly losing their zest for discovery and creativity for decades.
Young people who are initially afraid of school and later have "zero appetite for school" should be a wake-up call for all of us, leading to fundamental changes in our learning and educational culture.

In his lecture, Hüther shows how a strong, reliable and committed alliance of parents, educators and society can emerge. The common goal: to enable children to experience their innate joy of learning, discovering and creating together, and to promote their personal development.

The neurobiologist Prof. Dr. Gerald Hüther is one of the best-known brain researchers in Germany and is committed to a fundamental reform of the German education system.
