Live Chat: Regenerative Economics


22 Feb 2023



About this event

This open event gives prospective students for the Regenerative Economics programme at Schumacher College the opportunity to speak directly with the Programme team, Ruth Potts and Jay Tompt, ahead of the September start.

MA Regenerative Economics challenges and offers alternative perspectives to mainstream economics programmes by looking through the lens of ecology as if both people and planet mattered equally. The programme adopts an interrogative approach, exploring diverse global economic philosophies and models. The low-residency structure of this programme enables professionals to combine work and study.

The Regenerative Economics programme is organised into four taught modules and one dissertation module – Ecology and Economics, Beyond Growth, Regenerative Enterprise, and Changing the Frame. Diversity is part of the DNA of the programme. Each of these modules frame an inquiry into the problematics of the current dominant paradigm and explore alternatives across a broad range of perspectives and disciplines. Each of these modules include guest presenters and faculty, and topics include deep ecology, complexity, phenomenology, ecological economics, ‘neo-Schumpeterian’, Degrowth, solidarity economy, complexity economics, Doughnut Economics, wellbeing and care economics, ‘community wealth building’, new municipalism, ‘relocalisation’, and more.
