Our teaching and learning is changing in today’s innovation society and raises new questions for educational practice, research and politics.

  • How can children and young people develop social, ecological and entrepreneurial innovation skills for shaping their future?
  • What knowledge and which methods support teachers and learning guides so that the new generation can develop and experience their creative potential, their curiosity and their commitment in their own innovation project?
  • How are open workshops and maker spaces suitable as new learning spaces?
  • How can these be systematically integrated into the educational landscape and the regional environment of a school?

The organizers of this conference invite you to exchange experiences and strategies and to discussnew innovation methods for a sustainable future.
