Enhancing economic sustainability : theories, concept and tools Université Grenoble Alpes
Sustainable Development seems to be onmipresent It is embedded in the dominant economic system. But what are the characteristics of this dominant economic system ? The theoretical part of the course aims at studying these characteristics and how they are the results of several unquestioned myths, producing a dominant paradigm. Development, and of course sustainable development should then rest on other principles than the dominant ones. The course introduces what might be these alternative principles, based on a richer vision of humanity than the one of the homo oeconomicus. Applying these principles, it is then possible to analyse alternative initiatives, organisational innovations, in Western Countries as well as in the Global South. The practical part of the seminar will then spot innovative strategies and their possibilities of being reproduced, not only in terms of "good practises".
