Conference 2017:
Realizing Universal Responsibility


How can a sense of universal responsibility be fostered and expressed in the ways in which we relate to ourselves and to one another? How do we foster transcendence of our equally innate potential for to exclude, to monopolize, to isolate? What is the role of schools, families and local communities? What is the responsibility of adults for the quality of this sense in children and young adults? What does universal responsibility mean and how can it become a lived experience rather than an abstract ideal? What concrete experience is there in this field? What research has been done, etc.


In 2017, the city of Aarhus will be the European Capital of Culture. The official theme is “RETHINK”.

The RETHINK Our Common Future events are intended also as a contribution to this larger, local and regional event.
