Economic, ecological and social values are changing rapidly at all levels of global society. In this course we look at the interrelations between economy, ecology and values both at the global and the local level. There are threats and possibilities in the global economic transformation. The course emphasizes the active/constructive action-models as they emerge in the time of transformation.
There are threats to community if the global economic transformation is not socially embedded. Lack of embeddedness can create widespread rootlessness and a search for meaning - sometimes fundamentalism. The fundamentalism is defined in a broad sense: there is not only religious fundamentalism, but also an economic and a political fundamentalism. The uncritical acceptance of the market ideology might be considered as a form of fundamentalism. We also look at globalisation from below and the possibilities opened when people themselves are taking action in the global transformation process.
