The registration for summer term has ended. Our autumn term enrolments will start in July. 

Term Dates: 

Summer Term: 03 May - 18 July 2021

Autumn Term: 27 September - 12 December 2021 

This ten-week course explores our individual and collective responsibilities as human beings in the world. It follows on naturally from the course Ideas – Economics with Justice Part 2.

Responsibility, our ability to respond, is relevant to every aspect of economic relationships with others and with the world in which we live. The course considers what is needed to support the ability to respond appropriately, such as understanding, the sense of empathy or interconnectedness, and the extent to which there is recognition of wholeness or unity. This can apply to individuals and to collectives such as communities, nations or even all humankind.

The course progresses with a week-by-week consideration of individual and collective responsibility in various spheres of economic activity.

Join further lively discourses on Economics with Justice. Enrol today for September start of term. Classes will be on Zoom, each session being 75 minutes long.
