love of learning and teaching

"The real treasure that we would have to encourage is the enthusiasm for discovering and creating on one's own, the tinkering, the passion to get involved with something specific."
Gerald Hüther

Why do students become objects of our expectations and intentions, teachings and evaluations, or even measures and orders?
What concrete solutions can be found in schools that enable children and young people to rediscover their lost joy of discovery and creative spirit?
How can initiatives be built up locally and made visible in the media in order to mobilize a broad public?

Together with Gerald Hüther, we invite all interested parties and especially teachers, educators and students to develop concrete ideas for new development opportunities, new learning and teaching. The symposium is intended to result in processes and initiatives that can be implemented in practice.

The well-known neurobiologist Prof. Dr. Dr. Gerald Hüther is a best-selling author and advocates a fundamental reform of the German educational landscape as well as new approaches to living together with children and young people.
