Bovenberg: Citizenship and sustainability in economics education

On Friday, March 10, Lans Bovenberg took his leave as professor at Tilburg University. He did so by delivering his farewell address entitled "Citizenship and sustainability in economics education: about connection, meaning and happiness."

Inspiring speech in which Bovenberg advocates that citizenship and economics education in secondary schools go hand in hand. This will give students a more realistic picture of reality: that people are not only consuming individuals focused on their material self-interest but also citizens: cooperating, moral beings who love reciprocity as an end in itself.
