The Economies of the Commons

The Right Livelihood College Bonn in cooperation with the Alanus University of Arts and Social Sciences is hosting a Economic-Philosophical Fall Academy on “The Economies of the Commons. Reshaping Economic Education.”

Next to the failing privatized economy and state controlled economy one can see a third alternative: the economies of the commons. "The Academy defines these economies (tentatively) as places of being-together, in which people consciously shape their economic activities freely and in cooperation." This idea will be explored in lectures, workshops and discussion between lecturers and students from September 15 to 23, 2012.

Students of economics or with a special interest in the topic may apply until June 30, 2012. Please see theAlanus University’s website for detailed information about the programme, costs and the application procedure.
