This workshop was originally taught at the Summer Academy for Pluralist Economics 2022
Instructor: Sarah Lange (University of Siegen, Germany)
The workshop deals with the contribution of Plural Economics to the urgently needed change of the economic system towards sustainability and global responsibility.
After completing the module, participants should be able to demarcate and explain different economic approaches to sustainability. They should be able to evaluate the respective concepts based on their contribution to the ecological transformation of the economic system.
All texts used in the course will be sent to the participants by the instructor during the workshop. Therefore, no books need to be purchased or worked on in preparation for the course.
During the workshop, participants will work (among others) with excerpts from the following publications:
German-speaking course participants can (voluntarily) prepare for the guest lecture by looking at Prof. Peukert's current book:
Day 1: “Warm up”
Day 2: Economic growth with new attributes
Day 3: Alternative economic concepts outside the logic of growth
Day 4: New economic and social orders with a focus on human well-being
Day 5: Critical application and “cool down”
