AEMS will be back in Vienna from July 18th to August 5th, 2022!

Looking back - AEMS Summer School online 2.0!

In the past year, the AEMS was held online for an immersive experience, taking place from July 19th to August 6th, 2021!

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. Continuing on the enormous success of last year, the AEMS was therefore back in an upgraded online version in 2021 to discuss alternative approaches!


Highlights of the AEMS 2021 program included exciting lectures and exchanges on:

- How can financial markets serve the broader interests of society rather than to dominate them?

- What are solutions to the financial crisis triggered by COVID-19?

- What are alternatives to the current economic and monetary system?

- What role do the economic and financial systems play in the global climate crisis?

- Official certificate worth 5 ECTS from BOKU University upon completion of the program

- Interdisciplinary project work in international groups under guidance from climate expert Helga Kromp-Kolb

These highly motivated people burn with the desire to drive forward global changes that will help make life better for all of us! It is precisely this spirit, that we would like to see spreading in the world - the spirit of AEMS!

And this spirit is not exclusively limited to this Viennese Summer School - far from it. Events dedicated to making the economic systems more just and stopping climate change take place all around the world - and we're inspired by that movement. Find out more through the below links!
