We decided to reshape the online course on Associative Economics which was planned to take place from 6th to 30th March. But we still think that this important topic needs attention, especially in the current challenging times when many people face a many uncertainties. We want to look at the topic from a very practical angle. During seven online sessions we will explore the topic of associative economics in depth, reflect on it and every participant will be invited to work on their own individual question, to go through a guided process in order to open up new ways to address complex challenges. In seven online sessions we will deepen the topic of Associative Economics, reflect and exchange ideas, and also introduce the U-Theory. We will base the workshop both on the associative principles described by Rudolf Steiner and on the U-Theory of C. Otto Scharmer.
We will meet 7 times between 20th March and 17th July, on Mondays from 13.00 to 15.00 CET/CEST. Please find the exact dates below. Peer group learning will be organised, depending on individual needs and the group dynamic.
