Uitgebreide vaknaam MC Responsibilty, Creating Value and the New Economy
Leerdoelen Determining the factors for new/social projects in our (local) society and how these factors can be used to facilitate local development in “Shrinking areas” and or “Remote areas” in developing countries.
Omschrijving This Master class will not be limited to economics but focuses on new developments in our (local) society. Local development means in the traditional way, setting up business and trying to create conditions that will facilitate the creation of new business activities. This looks like traditional business in which the ultimate purpose is realizing profits, needed as a reward for entrepreneurship and needed as investment tools for the continuation of the company. Local development in the modern way means that besides economic activities social initiatives are also part of the local development and should be studied and facilitated.

In this Master class we want to develop a new perspective on local development that could contribute to local economic and social development. This perspective is based on ideas from the field of Circular Economy (see the Ted talk of Rotmans) and Weconomy (see the Ted talk of Jan Jonker). The focus will be on three elements: (1) responsibility for what will be produced and how, (2) which values and whose values are or can be involved, and (3) new ways of thinking in economics. You as participants will compare (for example by interviewing) four developers of social /new projects in terms of: which values are central, which participants are (intended to be) involved and finally what can be the role of these new projects for the local development of a region? We hope to discuss with the participants and four developers the results of the comparison.
