MA Economics for Transition

Schumacher College
Campus Full time Part time 1 - 3 years September 2017 United Kingdom Totnes + 1 more

In response to the deepening economic and related crises, we launched our postgraduate programme in Economics for Transition in association with the New Economics Foundation, the Transition Network and the Business School at Plymouth University. Start Date - Sept 2017 [+]

Masters of Arts 2017 in Devon United Kingdom. Achieving Low-Carbon, High Well-Being, Resilient Economies Never has there been a more important time for a new approach to economics. There is an urgent need for a radical rethink of our economic system. We need new thinking and new models that recognise the challenges we face now, rather than blindly following the path that has led us into the converging crises we now face. These models will enable us to both mitigate the impacts and adapt to these inter-locking crises – including 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 complementarity of ecological protection and human flourishing. For 20 years, pioneering thinkers and practitioners have been developing alternative economic ideas, models and experiments that were once considered radical and marginal. As we turn to face a new economic dawn, these theories and practices are now moving centre stage. “I teach at Schumacher College because of its strong link with ecological sustainability and an approach which is based on collaborative co-creation. People are not told what to do, together they co-create their ideas. It’s a fundamentally different model of education that we can learn from and apply to the economy as well as other areas of our life.” Professor Eve Mitleton-Kelly, London School of Economics Why Schumacher College? Since 1991, Schumacher College has been pioneering radical new thinking in economics, attracting leading teachers,... [-]

Are you dismayed, disturbed and totally disenchanted with what is happening to the only real planetary home we have? So are we. But are you also excited by the opportunities and prospects this opens up for us to create a better, brighter and more beautiful world? So are we. Then join us in this innovative new postgraduate programme from Schumacher College in collaboration with the School of Architecture, Design and Environment at Plymouth University, the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University, the Dartington Hall Trust and surrounding communities. Ecological Design Thinking Never has there been a more important time for a new approach for engaging with the challenging situations we face from the local to the global levels.
