secondary education

❓How do I get my students to practice making business decisions that are not based solely on financial outcomes?

❓How do I tell about business trends such as true pricing, circularity or multiple value?

❗Op Thursday, November 21 revolves around high school economics teachers (business economics, general economics and entrepreneurship) seeking and finding answers to these questions.

At various locations around the country, economics teachers show how they connect their economics lessons to contemporary issues. Finally, in collaboration with Vecon, we reflect on how these topics will have a place in the new core objectives and what is needed to prepare for them.
