Get the skills, knowledge and networks to build sustainable, local economies.
How We Are Different
Our goal is to empower you to start building a sustainable, local economy today. We only teach methods that work, methods that move us to sustainability, and methods that can be implemented by neighborhoods and communities with limited resources.
Instructors are accomplished professionals with real world experience. They are part of a global movement of people who are building the new economy. Our instructors care about your success.
This program isn't extra work: it brings your current work to a whole new level. We want you to test new approaches. Screwing up is how you find out if your assumptions were right or wrong. Making mistakes means you are trying out new ideas.
Our program design intentionally builds productive relationships. Your ability to get things done is directly related to your ability to tap your professional networks for resources, advice, exchanges and partnerships. We help alumni stay in touch through events, newsletters and social media.
