Utrecht University’s Dynamics of Youth (DOY) research theme aims to find the answers to questions that will be crucial to future generations. The DOY programme committee comprises representatives from all seven Utrecht University faculties. Vice Dean of Education Wim Kremer sits on the programme committee on behalf of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
Kremer: "Growing up, parenting and education are hot topics right now. The media coverage is relentless and the court of public opinion is demanding interventions and fast results. Although our children and adolescents generally do well, a lot does also seem to go wrong when growing up in our rapidly changing society." How should we interpret this and what can we do? This is what the strategic theme Dynamics of Youth is all about.
