Alternative Economic and Monetary Systems

(5 ECTS) is open to motivated applicants from all fields of study and focuses on alternatives to the economic status quo. The program follows an interdisciplinary and holistic approach: International participants deal with limits of growth, as well as the instabilities of our financial system and learn why a drastic system change is necessary to stabilize the world climate at 1.5°C – and most importantly: they are presented with an array of alternative approaches!
