Course content

This programme considers alternative economic models that were once considered marginal but could now help us radically rethink our existing financial systems.

What changes are needed to make our societies more resilient in the face of climate change, biodiversity loss, reliance on fossil fuels, financial instability, food security and poverty.

As we turn to face a new economic dawn, we see how these theories and practices are now moving centre stage.
