Watch Lene Rachel Andersen and Tomas Björkman talk about The Nordic Secret with their German publisher:
The book was just published in German: Das Skandinavische Geheimnis on Phaenomen Verlag.
Based on the insights about folk-bildung from The Nordic Secret and on Lene’s work in the think tank Nordic Bildung, there is now a European Bildung Network for you to join if you are in Europe and are interested in working with bildung and folk-bildung.
The network was started in 2019 and has hosted the European Bildung Day on May 9th in Berlin 2019 and online 2020.
Wonderful commentary by David Brooks about what makes Scandinavia great: that Nordic secret of ours, Bildung. Please enjoy: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/13/opinion/scandinavia-education.html
Besides the public event at Perspectiva, Jonathan Rowson interviewed Lene Andersen about her writing and philosophy prior to The Nordic Secret, the paradigm shift that we are in as a civilization–and much more.
The room was full and people were on a waiting list when Jonathan Rowson from Perspectiva interviewed Lene and Tomas about The Nordic Secret.
As the picture indicates, the first part of the evening was rather conventional.
But then the creative Perspectiva people, not least Pippa Evans, turned the event into a game of Simon Says. We all had to work ourselves through the phases of indigenous culture, pre-modern, modern, and post-modern culture in order to eventually land in metamodernity–when Simon said so.
We were all so occupied by this exercise touching our heads and standing on one foot that we forgot taking pictures. Sorry.

The lecture hall was packed when we presented The Nordic Secret in Stockholm on January 23rd.
Our publisher, Fri Tanke Förlag had organized a wonderful event and to our great pleasure, it was a very diverse group of people who attended. We also ran out of books.
