Broaden the Horizon
An inspiring international conference on discovering new insights, challenges and opportunities for education, youthcare and the future inflow of work. For professionals who want to keep on traveling in their life and work with young people!
Not from yesterday ... ....
Changes in our society are being made in an ever faster pace and the complexity of the presented issues is also increasing. Internationalization, communication technology and information exchange are well known examples. Less and less will we be able to provide the correct answers as an individual professional or independent organization. In addition, the consumer or client asks a quick reply more often. Preferably right now.
Potential use ... ..
Also in raising children, education, (judicial) youth care and employment inflow we become more and more aware. If we want to give adequate answers we will have to work together more and more effectively with colleagues, chain partners, family and parents. Especially the children, young pupils and students, who are involved in the issues we face, we have to learn to use as keys to the solutions. Learning to use them, since we are not accustomed to that fact, and we are not good at it yet. Because .... "Complex questions we can only solve the collective intelligence of all who are concerned," says Tex Gunning, CEO of AkzoNobel. The reverse chain approach learning to realize, were the intelligence, energy, creativity, learningability and entrepreneurship of young people can be put to use in a really valuable way might be our greatest task as a contemporary professional.
Trackless paths ... ..
During this conference we want to walk along the trackless path, gain new insights together, get new relationships for mutual enrichment and above all to find out what the future is revealing us.
We therefore invite not only our own circle of experts. We go for fresh, innovative insights from other disciplines to broaden our horizons.
We invite experts who can tell us what about multiple intelligence, about how the street culture in our schools and youthcare is present, about the reversed chain approach and the use of comtemporary forms of communication, about collective intelligence and a lot more.
The conference aims to reflect the different types of intelligences of the participants, both in form and content. There is emphasis on experience, science, listening, doing, making, interaction and creativity. We also ask several people to make a contribution.
