Schumacher College, in its own words, “offers transformative learning for sustainable living. Courses at the College aim to empower and equip people who wish to make changes to the world situation they see developing around them.” The new programme for the period from Sep. 2008 to April 2009 offers a variety of intriguing courses.
Ecological engineers, for example, may find thrilling new ideas in concepts in the course “Ethical pioneers – an interactive masterclass for the new entrepreneur” (Nov. 24 – Dec. 5, 2008) or in “Systems thinking in practice” (March 9-27, 2009), or in the one year “Masters Degree in Holistic Science”.
The list of current and former teachers and guest teachers reads like a Who’s who of the ecological community: Wendell Berry, Michael Braungart, Jane Goodall, Margrit Kennedy, James Lovelock, Vandana Shiva, and many many others have been teaching and lecturing there.
