An educational programme to bring circular entrepreneurship to secondary schools
Through our project, we want to stimulate circular entrepreneurship with, e.g., the mini-enterprise or the student company supported by Vlajo. Within this project, Hasselt University, Vlajo, circular companies and secondary schools are working together to develop a supporting framework that assists teachers conceptually and substantively in getting started with circular entrepreneurship:
we examine the barriers that teachers experience in implementing circular entrepreneurship;
we compile an inventory of existing educational materials and make new educational materials to develop a single, practically usable curriculum;
we develop training courses to turn teachers into “CircularInfluencers”;
we design assessment tools and develop a “Circular community”.
We are carrying out the project and testing it within Limburg, but it can be scaled up to the whole of Flanders afterwards.
