Resistance to accepting knowledge has become a major challenge that can lead to catastrophic consequences for the world. Scepticism towards vaccines, climate change denial, and resistance to policy-relevant knowledge are examples that pose significant challenges to democratic societies.
As educators, we play a crucial role in promoting engagement. How, then, can teachers help students to understand this pivotal relationship between knowledge and engagement? How can we inspire them to become active and engaged citizens who can make well-informed decisions based on evidence and critical thinking, and who are able to differentiate between mere opinions and substantiated facts?
These are the core questions of this year’s Nobel Prize Teacher Summit. Join Nobel Prize laureates, top scientists, peace activists and fellow teachers from more than thirty countries and attend this unique, yearly event. Groundbreaking ideas, inspiring insights, unforgettable meetings and non-googleable stories will all be included.
We look forward to seeing you there!
