German philosopher and former State Minister of Culture Julia Nida Rümelin made this quote in his Book „Der Akademisierungswahn“ (2014) about „being the author of your own life“. His critics in this book address especially a shift from the dual education system in Germany to a sometimes forced academic education. This leads to a lack of skilled workers and to „well educated“ students without practical knowledge and social skills.
Being the author of your own life means to write your own „book“, your special way. I will talk about the skills needed to do that and a school-setting to accomplish that. We realized it with Colearning Vienna.
