Accepted to study Economics for Transition Master, Totnes, United Kingdom

The study Economics for Transition at Schumacher College is set up by Satish Kumar,
a former monk and environmental activist and is situated on the Dartington Estate in
Devon, bought by Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst in the 1920s and shaped with help of
pioneers such as Rabindranath Tagore into a creative and socially engaged community.
Examples of current influences of the college are Vandana Shiva - Indian scholar,
environmental activist and food sovereignty advocate, Fritjof Capra - the American
physicist, system-theorist and deep ecologist, James Lovelock - the writer and creator
of the Gaia hypothesis and Stephan Harding - zoologist, writer and previously head of
Holistic Science Master at Schumacher College.

The Economics for Transition Master aims to understand and create connection to the
concept of Gaia, the earth as one working animate whole. Comparing to other master
programs around environmental humanities the base of Schumacher College is community,
its gardens and developing an understanding of sustainable agriculture - from which
we as community members can develop a physical, coherent and inclusive relationship
to the natural world. The master aims to teach theory based economics as part of a
sustainable, ecologically aware and egoless society.
