The Week of Economic Education is all about future-proof economic education. It is the place to be for education professionals from secondary schools, vocational schools, universities of applied sciences and universities of applied sciences who are working on economic education that fits in with the world of tomorrow. The Week of Economic Education offers them the opportunity to meet, learn and inspire each other.

The first national Week of Economics Education will take place from November 14 to 18, 2022. During this week education professionals will find inspiration and tools in future-proofing their economics education. Throughout the week, activities will take place in which good examples are shown, new economic principles are discussed and education professionals can meet each other. Education professionals and institutions that have taken steps in future-proofing their economics education will have their say. Their stories offer inspiration and tools for others to apply in their own practice. The week concludes with a festive closing event.

There are several ways you can participate in Economics Education Week:
  1. Open your doors! During the week of November 14 through 18, 2022, organize an activity that revolves around future-proof economics education. You decide what this activity looks like. It can range from large to small, from a workshop or webinar to a tour or excursion. Or theme an already planned event around inclusive, sustainable and future-proof economics education. Sign up your activity on our website to get on the national calendar. You can still sign up.
  2. Bring attention to Economics Education Week (internally or externally). For example, come up with a fun action for your students or teachers, or bring out an announcement or teaching materials during 'the Week'. By working together in communication, we strengthen each other. #Weekvanheteconomieonderwijs
