Steffen Noack was born in Schleswig-Holstein in 1949. He studied at the University of Kiel, the Technical University of Berlin and the School of Education in Berlin. Since 1974, he has taught at various schools in Berlin while also giving lectures on the continuing education of teachers and serving as an educational consultant to the Berlin-Hohenschönhausen Memorial. In 1990, Noack began to become engaged in various projects of UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network, traveling to Bosnia, Croatia, Russia and Georgia, among other countries. Influenced by Eastern European dissidents and the French »new philosophers«, he opposes indifference toward populist and totalitarian tendencies in Europe and its neighbours. Noack lives in Berlin.
