MA Economics for Transition
It is precisely at this time of global upheaval that we want you to come to Schumacher College to share with us the ways in which you are moved to live and act differently. With a focus on interactive, experiential and participatory learning, Schumacher College offers the practical skills and strategic thinking required to face the ecological, economic and social challenges of the 21st Century bringing together the leading thinkers, activists and practitioners internationally, to deliver a unique brand of small group learning experiences. Schumacher College has an enviable reputation for cutting-edge learning.
We need new thinking and new models of our economic system that recognise the challenges we face rather than blindly following the path that has led us into the converging crises we now face. These models include climate change, biodiversity loss, the peaking in fossil fuel energy supplies, financial instability, food security, poverty and so on. They will be built on an understanding of the complementarily of ecological protection and human flourishing.
