"We know that many people will be asking for a program. This is an acquired habit, but in our opinion contrary to the principles of autopoïesis (Varela and Maturana) or self- organising (Erich Jantsch)."

- Charles van der Haegen, ZERI foundation -

This year, the Living University will open up to a broader network of regional initiatives for the common good to join in on the Living University. Hence, an opportunity to grasp the value of a Blue Economy perspective and learn how to integrate its principles and DNA within you own context.

 

This is an unique opportunity to interact and work with the front line of the blue economy. Together we collaborate and learn -whilst doing- how initiatives emerge and sustain from a radically renewing view on entrepreneurship.
