secondary vocational education

More and more mbo teachers are looking for and finding room to include topics such as true pricing, circular economy or chain responsibility in their lessons. Some mbo institutes even have a special professorship that focuses on circularity or the Sustainable Development Goals.

Teachers and educational institutions working in this field take the stage to share their experience during the Week of Economics Education. On this page you can see what activities take place during the Week of Economics Education, and find inspiration for future-oriented economics education in your education.
