7 May 2013

Kultuurkaffee, VUB, Campus Etterbeek, Pleinlaan 2, 1050 Brussel

Part of project: 
(2009-...): Campustalks

The world is changing rapidly. Creativity is a key component in a society that has entered a post-industrial era. To solve the contemporary problems like aging, globalization and technocracy, contemporary and innovative responses are needed. The aim of the Human Sciences is to transform students into socially alert citizens who may come up with some solutions to the current crisis in society.


This Campustalks gives the floor to VUB researchers from the Human Sciences to present their research and to reflect on a possible future society and alternative economic, social, financial models that could be part of it.
