secondary education

There are many economics teachers who seek and find room within the existing frameworks to include topics such as true pricing, circular economy or broad welfare in their economics lessons.

These teachers take the stage during Economy Education Week to share their experience. On this page you will see what activities are taking place during Economics Education Week, and find inspiration for future-oriented economics education in your classes.
