Strengthening Resilience - Transforming Local Economies

September 4 – 23, 2016 Monte Ginezzo, Tuscany, Italy

Located outside the Etruscan hill town of Cortona in Tuscany, the Synergia Summer Institute for Commonwealth Transition offers an intensive program of exploration, instruction, dialogue, and practical training on transition models for the realization of an ethical economy. The Synergia Summer Institute applies the knowledge and practice of co-operation, economic democracy, and the commons to address the central issues of sustainability and social wellbeing at local, regional and global levels. The overarching focus of the Synergia program is to answer the question: What is the ethical economy and how does it work? The course will provide a critical overview of the contours of this new political economy and the mechanisms required for its realization.
The Synergia Summer Institute is very privileged to offer some of the very finest minds and practitioners in their respective felds of study and practice.
