It’s the end of ‘business as usual’. The time has come to weave together a new social reality in alignment with our values, and to create an economic system that benefits us all. A system fit for the real world.


Based on the Human Scale Development framework of Chilean economist Manfred Max-Neef, this workshop offers the chance to come together and dive deeply into the challenges we are facing and gain a new perspective on what is possible. It includes practical tools to engage your community, thought provoking presentations, group discussions and fun interactive exercises that will equip you to be an effective change-maker in your community.


You will learn:

• Models that integrate economics, ecology and wellbeing

• How concepts like ‘Gift culture’ and ‘Re-localisation’ fit into a new economic paradigm

• How to incorporate the concept of ‘Fundamental Human Needs’ into project design

• A range of practical tools for catalysing local innovation and enterprise


“Our focus has always been the wellbeing of our community. With this training we have acquired practical guidelines for meeting people’s fundamental needs as well as the tools to create successful projects.” Maria, Spain
