Stockholm 2018: Teach, Love & Understanding
The Nobel Prize Teacher Summit is an international teacher conference held in Stockholm every year in October. Teachers from over 30 countries meet Nobel Prize Laureates, top scientists and peace activists around a theme of great importance in education. The initiative builds on the ability of the Nobel Prize to inspire people to seek out knowledge, to ask questions and to attempt to understand and improve the world. Without great teachers, there would be no new Nobel Prizes.
A world without ignorance and racism starts in school, therefore we choose this year's theme to be Teach, Love and Understanding. We invited hundreds of teachers to spend a day together with Nobel Prize Laureates, scientists, change makers and hundreds of engaged colleagues from all over the world during Nobel Prize Teacher Summit 2018. The questions we intended to answer during the summit was how you can improve the way you promote democracy, non-violence and sustainable development in your daily work. How education based on science can prepare our students to be tolerant and engaged citizens.
