This course is for those wanting to understand the practice of transitioning from capitalism economic globalism under
capitalism to a human needs oriented, sustainable localized economy. PROUT (the Progressive Utilization Theory) is a new, solution-oriented paradigm of development first introduced several decades ago. With the growing awareness of the
systemic depths of global crises, there has been increased interest in PROUT as an appealing alternative to capitalism.
What has been missing for many who’ve taken interest in PROUT is a clear articulation of the process of transition to this new system, and a vision for its practical operation in guiding local development.
The PROUT Institute has given particular focus to these two topics. The approaches it has developed are ground-breaking and will get special attention in this course. Much of the material covered will be cutting-edge thinking. For those looking for both a new social vision based on a Gaian worldview, and a methodology for its practical implementation, this course is for you.
