World of Work
in favour of the Student
As found in practice, namely through many year long experience with OPEDUCA BusinessClass and the contributions of companies in OPEDUCA Flight for Knowledge, closer connections to the world of work, specifically Industry, offer students access to relevant data and information, the application of knowledge, the meaning of competencies and the value of cooperation and work. At any level (from primary up to and including higher education) the learning process benefits from the meaning giving practical context. Insights gained in society’s value- and income-generating capacity are seen to contribute effectively to a new generations' awareness of sustainable development as their understanding of the world of (un-)sustainable consumption and production unfolds. They are observed to generate a foundation for the design and development of own concepts and ideas, begin to envision how they would choose, rule, regulate, produce, trade and handle goods and services, (be-)come the Entrepreneurs of a more prosperous future in each Dimension of Sustainable development. Earlier and professionally structured connections between the worlds of schooling and work effectively contribute to the generation of knowledge that underpins future wisdom. Wisdom informs action in the course of sustainable development, whether as an employee, entrepreneur or informed consuming citizen.
