Fourth Deans’ Summit, 25-26 April, Amsterdam
TRANSFORMATION, new directions in education
What has changed since we wrote the pledge in Oslo during the first Deans’ Summit? We’ve made a promise to ourselves, to each other, to our students, for the benefit of a livable future on the planet. And we, as educators have a responsibility.
‘we recognise the climate crisis as the most significant issue within our lifetimes, and our institutional responsibility to promote conditions that support quality of life and dignity for future generations and our planet. We promise to incorporate the current concerns into common values and to choose the right measures in aligning our curricula and research to confront these wicked problems with the urgency, leadership and prominence they demand, hereby aiming for the construction of a shared European frame of reference.’
We are curious to learn what has changed in your schools and eager to hear each others proposals, best practices, changes in curricula, stories and student projects. How do others deal with difficult questions, like for example the importance of internationalisation on the one hand and ecologic traveling on the other hand.
Together we will be reflecting on the pledge and discuss the transformations in our curricula.
