Our economic system leads to exploitation of natural resources and plays a significant role in climate change. The financial system, with its unregulated banking and speculatory practices, and the dynamics of compound interest contribute to ecological degradation and a systematic redistribution of wealth to the richest part of the population.
Should we go back to business-as-usual, or pave the road to an ecologically and socially desirable future for us all? Alternative ways of thinking and pioneering visions are more relevant than ever!
Exploring different approaches and new ideas is especially important during these globally challenging times – even more so with regards to the current growth-based economy and unstable financial system. We are all a part of the overarching system created - and therefore we have the ability to alter it!
Have we made you curious? The AEMS 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 education program with a holistic approach to the topic? Then look no further!
Everyone is needed to tackle the growing challenges presented by climate change. That is why, in close collaboration with our partners, we now enable an even broader access to the hands-on knowledge provided within the AEMS with 10 available Empowerment Scholarships.
