I remember from past history that invaders first killed the teachers and afterwards they burned all books. Yes, invaders stopped the existing education and changed it into theirs. I see that the core of our Flemish education system however still dates from the years 1800. In these times ‘education’ produced silent workers and not leaders. Are you curious then to know today why ‘Flanders’ is not known anymore in the world?
Titans’ first advice to our governments is to start uplifting our school teachers into a new updated role: reshaping our “youth” and our youngsters into those “individuals” who are feeling respected, loved and appreciated.
The second advice is to start creating new ‘left and right brain’ study programms in all schools. First they refer to left brain education, like ‘financial’ and future ‘career’ education, education regarding ‘personal growth’, education regarding sustainable ‘health’. Second, our young people need to be right brain trained in matters like relationships, relaxation, social contribution, environmental matters, creativity, culture and burn-out avoidance.
You will see…The result we be explosive within 3 or 4 years. Motivated white and blue collar colleagues will be the result.
In order to trigger this change, you see that I heard the input of the 100 most important Flemish personalities. They have proven in the past not to shirk away from any challenges of today and tomorrow. We all need their courage now, their knowledge and their engagement for helping to implement new programms in education first. Their vision regarding ‘waste’ and ‘rubbish’ and their way of creating sustainable energy are topics which, today are more actual than ever.
In our Land of the Blind, Flanders, cyclops wishes them to copy existing succesful endeavours from other countries, localizing and improving them in order to let them match our Flemish way of life. And who knows, later on, this modified and finetuned expertise can be exported to countries in need for that kind of excellence.
Cyclops wishes to spur society to take action once again by offering encouragement and restoring faith in our own abilities. The key is to copy the best of all worlds and paste it into your Flemish fabric.
If the best country in waste management is Sweden, why don’t we copy their system and why don’t we improve it for our benefit? Outside Sweden, one million plastic bottles are still produced per minute. 91% of these amounts are NOT recycled. This rubbish finally will drift into our own waters ! Do we ever wish to leave this present to our children ?
If the best education is to be found in Finland, why don’t we send a group of experts to analyse it and improve it towards a new Flemish masterpiece? We do have the best experts, why are we waiting to benefit from their advice ?
Huge amounts of sleeping and cheap money are ready on the side line, enabling to fuel a wide range of social and research projects and new business clusters and, in doing so, successfully bringing together the experience of many years of entrepreneurship and the ambition and talent of young start-ups. Expertise from the Titans combined with accelerated learning Expertise from international Mentors and coaches.
The ultimate goal is to engender a universal change in our lifestyle and initiate a more meaningful perception of consumption and value.
The start is Flanders, the goal is Europe”.
