Inhalt Since the aftermath of the second world war, economic growth has been the dominant paradigm to enhance nations’ welfare. Over time, economic measures such as the gross domestic product have become internalized into our society, while increasing wealth determine the actions of politics and industry. However, this focus on economic growth has led to a wide variety of undesirable effects, ranging from environmental degradation to inequality and injustice. To address these negative side-effects, sustainability, various scholars and practitioners have explored and developed various alternative economic approaches, each presenting an alternative perspective on how our economies can be organized.

In this seminar, we will reflect and critically discuss the concept of growth, it’s history and current developments towards sustainable or green growth as well as degrowth. Additionally, we will explore a variety of alternative approaches (such as degrowth, circular economy, sharing economy, doughnut economy, economy for the common good, etc.).
To do so, groups of participants will each focus on one alternative economy and its societal implications and host a seminar session on the topic together with a practitioner from the region. Goal of this group project is to learn and experience how theoretical approaches are transformed into practical approaches and to reflect on its potential and challenges for societal transformations.

At the end of the seminar, participants are expected to write an individual reflection essay, describing their perspective the alternative economies and their societal implications.
