Frequently Asked Questions

Economic Education Week is all about future-proof economic education. It is the place to be for education professionals from secondary schools, universities and colleges who are in the process of incorporating new frameworks for economic thinking into their education, in order to make it more compatible with today's professional field and society as well as with what is needed for the future. During the Week of Economic Education, they have the opportunity to meet, learn from and inspire each other.

The third Week of Economics Education will take place Nov. 18-22, 2024. The week offers a substantive program for and by education professionals who show how they are creating space for new economic thinking within their education. Activities will take place throughout the week in which good examples will be shown, new economic principles will be 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.
