Review: Summer Academy

We live in times of unrest. Climate change and environmental destruction; the crisis of the European Union and the rise of right-wing populism; concentration of wealth and casualization, tax evasion and youth unemployment - today’s world is in a mess.

We want to do justice to these issues and look beyond the narrow confinements of mainstream economics for solutions.

Review: Workshops

We have organised 9 workshops which will run in parallel throughout the week. Each workshop focuses on one alternative approach to economics or economic policy and will offer you a comprehensive introduction to the subject matter.

Organisation Team

We are a group of students from across Germany. We are tired of waiting for universities to change their curricula in favour of pluralism and diversity, and are therefore taking matters into our own hands – this Summer Academy is the kind of education we want.
