Homo Florens in Higher Economics Education

Project Homo Florens stimuleert het Hoger Economisch Onderwijs om anders naar de mens en diens drijfveren te kijken!

Purpose of Homo Florens

In the current Higher Economic Education, man is primarily seen as a rational and individualistic being who is primarily out to satisfy his own needs to the maximum. This view of man does not do justice to the value that people attach to relationships with their fellow man. In scientific research by our partner The Institute of Leadership and Social Ethics is the alternative of the Homo florens formulated. This human is focused on sustainable relationships and finds satisfaction in the well-being of others. This human view can support students in Higher Economic Education during their careers to participate in the transition to a sustainable, inclusive and humane economie. Nieuwsgierig? Lees alvast meer over Homo florens:

In dit project worden deze theoretische inzichten over de Homo florets verwerkt in lesmethodes voor het Hoger Economisch Onderwijs. Met als doel: de leiders van morgen op te leiden tot het maken van andere, meer menswaardige keuzes waarbij het belang van de ander in hun economisch handelen (en dat van de organisaties waar ze werken) verankerd is. Enthousiast en geïnspireerd? Onderwijsprofessionals die mee willen doen zijn van harte welkom. Neem gauw contact op met Giuseppe van der Helm via giuseppe@lerenvoormorgen.org.
