Week of the
economics education

From November 18 to 22, 2024, the third edition of the Week of Economics Education will take place. The Week of Economics Education is the national week for future-proof economics education in the Netherlands for vo, mbo, hbo and wo.

Work is currently underway on the week's content program in collaboration with education professionals from all levels of education. The agenda is not yet known, but it is clear that the program will provide tools and inspiration for economics education that is in line with developments in science and society.

Economic science is evolving. In order to stay connected to the field and a society in which sustainability and inclusion play an ever-increasing role, there is a need in the classroom for discussion and a broader perspective. There is a need to enrich education, to get students thinking.

Teachers plant the first seeds from which a student's view of the subject sprouts. It is important that those seeds be diverse and paint a complete picture. With a broad range of scientific perspectives, students can weigh for themselves all the values in society. Because in addition to the value of wealth and money, there are other values. The value of well-being, for example, of people and the environment.

Although many education professionals work hard to enrich their lessons, not everyone finds room for this within the existing frameworks of curriculum and time. Economics Education Week provides a platform where education professionals can discuss with each other the development of economic science, and how it can find a place in the classroom.
