28 September in Stockholm: Teaching Knowledge – Learning Engagement

The Nobel Prize Teacher Summit is an international conference held in Stockholm each autumn. On 28 September, teachers from over thirty countries will convene with Nobel Prize laureates, top scientists and peace activists to explore the theme of engagement.

As our societies face major challenges, it is more important than ever to uphold democratic values, human rights and trust in science. At this year’s Nobel Prize Teacher Summit, we will emphasise the essential role of knowledge as a prerequisite for engagement, activism and building sustainable democratic societies.

Engagement requires understanding, and understanding requires knowledge. Our lineup of prominent speakers will share insights on curbing fake facts, overcoming skewed worldviews and empowering the next generation. At the core of the conference lies the question of what role teachers can play in promoting engagement.

The Teacher Summit builds on the ability of the Nobel Prize to inspire people to seek out knowledge and make a positive impact. Without great teachers, there would be no new Nobel Prizes.
