The interdisciplinary “Alternative Economics and Monetary Systems” (AEMS) summer school welcomes students and professionals from all fields and focuses on alternatives to the economic status quo. The program follows an interdisciplinary and holistic approach: International participants deal with limits to growth, as well as the instabilities of our financial system and learn why a drastic system change is necessary to stabilize the world climate — but most importantly: they discuss an array of alternative approaches, such as ethical banking, Circular Economy, the Economy for the Common Good, Degrowth, and much more!
The AEMS is an academic summer school taking place in Vienna and held in English.
This year, it is taking place from 15 July – 2 August 2024.
The summer school is open to students and professionals from all fields who strive to create a more just and green future. Are you looking for a unique educational program with a holistic approach to the topic? Then look no further!
