language English
duration 1 week
fee CHF 210

Would you like to discuss how we can tackle current economic crises focused on: Climate, Finance, Inequality?
You are interested in decarbonised economies, buen vivir, ubuntu, feminist degrowth or inflation from a pluralist perspective?
Critical thinking and new perspectives asides from neoclassical economics sound good to you?

We are back! After a successful first edition, we are organizing another Summer School for all people interested in learning more about pluralist economics. The aim is to introduce different schools of thought, opening up new perspectives in economic thinking, and outlining solutions to economic crises. All essential concepts will be worked out in adequate formats embedded into our summer school. Speakers and peers will bring you an in-depth perspective into their research.

This summer school is designed to appeal to all people, no matter their prior knowledge of heterodox economics. The goal is to spark or expand critical thinking with regard to neoclassical economics and the ensuing economic policies. You will be empowered to create your own ideas and projects moving forward.

Shared meals and relaxed evenings with movies or bonfires will leave much space for making friends and connecting with like-minded participants. This might be the perfect setting to expand and strengthen the network for plural economics within Switzerland and beyond.
