Mini Symposium on Economy for the Common Good at Macromedia University – Live on ZOOM.

Prof. Oliver Szasz, head of the M.A. Design Management program, in cooperation with Gemeinwohl-Ökonomie Bayern e.V. invites you to a virtual mini symposium on the economic concept of Economy for the Common Good (ECG) – a comprehensive and coherent economic model which has been founded as a social movement in 2010 and is now being practised in more than 2,000 companies and a large number of universities and communities in Europe and South America.

ECG is seen as a new economic approach to framing economic activity within environmental and social boundaries. In contrast to other approaches, ECG aims to encourage companies to move away from embedding sustainability in the prevailing rationale of profit maximisation and to integrate their economic activities in a broader social context, linking them to the fundamental human values of dignity, solidarity, social justice, environmental sustainability, democracy and transparency.

Date: Fri. 7 May from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Registration (free of charge):
