Everywhere – at home and abroad – we see that people take the initiative and actually get to work with important social challenges. They take the driver’s seat!
In this session, English-speaking students “Management, Society and Technology” (University of Twente) present essays about Dutch and foreign examples of such community-initiatives. What are the AMBITIONS of these people? What do they DO to realize that? And what can we learn from the experiences with these forms of initiative and self-governance?
Moderator: dr. Ringo Ossewaarde (UT)
