It will not have escaped your notice that we are in the middle of a socio-economic transition. As it becomes increasingly painfully clear that our current economic system is unsustainable due to advancing climate change and the collapse of biodiversity, there is more and more room for fundamentally different, pluralistic economic voices. The neo-classical economic dominance with its focus on welfare, improvement of living standards and economic growth is making way for a new focus on well-being, improvement of living standards and ecological growth. In this triptych, you get to know a number of radically new economic thinkers and radically new economic thinking.

This event can only be attended physically at our studio. The recordings will be made available later on and can be viewed via or via our YouTube channel.

Today we are talking about commons. Are commons the change agents of our economic system?
