How will our future be if change is the only constant factor? Which academic competences will be necessary for jobs we do not know yet? How to educate/prepare for the unexpected? The Wageningen University BSc Honours Programme proudly presents “Educating for the Future” with Rutger Bregman and others.
Rutger Bregman, historian and writer, will take us on a quest to a potential future for our rapidly changing society. He will inspire us on how to educate/prepare for a future that we do not yet know. Linda Luchtman gives us an update on educational formats that appeal to the current students and could help them prepare for a century that increasingly demands for intellectual mobility. Celeste van Kastel, Hans Dekker, Maria-Franca Dekkers and Wietse Wiersma (students BSc Honours Programme) will share their dreams on their own educational path with us.
