“Politicians don’t pay attention to the science taught at school, so why should we still study?” Many youngsters concerned about our climate ask that question. At the same time, it links to the questioning of our business schools, who turned out to be unable to predict, let alone resolve, the financial crisis. As a reaction, British student Maeve Cohen founded the Post-Crash Economics Society, meanwhile she became director of Rethinking Economics. She will talk to Christian Felber, the Austrian thinker who started the “Economy for the Common Good” movement. UN Youth Representative on sustainable development Flore De Pauw, represents the voice of Generation Hope in this debate. With the “student manifesto for an ecological awakening“, Corentin Bisot shows that Generation Hope is ready for another educational system. 30 000 students have already signed this manifesto in which hope is translated into concrete actions.
