How to liberate and harness our true wealth
A New Economy is on its way.
Around the world people are working together, sharing resources, questioning the prevailing paradigm and creating more sustainable systems. This intensive two day workshop is an opportunity to learn about these alternatives and discover what role you can play.
With the Human Scale Development framework developed by ‘barefoot’ economist Manfred Max-Neef as our starting point, we will ask where our true wealth lies and explore how we can draw on our existing strengths to create thriving local communities.
Through presentations, interactive exercises and group discussions we will explore:
Frameworks that integrate ecology, economics and wellbeing
How our current economic story gets in the way of effective action
The social and financial benefits of economic re-localisation
The impact of different money systems and how to ‘change the exchange’
The importance of the ‘invisible economy’
What you can do in your community right now!
Discover new ways to inspire community engagement, learn key concepts in new economic thinking, be inspired by a multitude of groundbreaking projects and gain tools to create positive lasting change.
Fee: sliding scale 80/100/120 euros
(includes home cooked lunch and refreshments)
“This workshop completely changed my perception of economics.”
