An economy for the people and for nature.
Activities & Projects
We provide a German-language platform that generates critical and constructive impulses for the development of a future fit economy and economic science.
Our core focus is an understanding of the economy that recognizes and takes its ecological and social foundations into account and recognizes the democratic scope for shaping it.
To this end we carry out the following projects:
Inspirations for doing it differently
Here you can find various materials and in the future also best-practice examples, which can be used as inspiration for (your own) economics teaching.
Here you can find various impulses that make suggestions for institutional changes and discuss concrete consequences for the economy and business.

The German-speaking part of Economists for Future connects people from civil society, politics and science for a critical-constructive exchange on economics in order to actively participate in the social debate on economic issues and to develop alternatives to current economic thinking and action.
In the course of the Fridays for Future demonstrations, we emerged in the spring 2019 from the Network for pluralist economics (Netzwerk Plurale Ökonomik e.V.). We see ourselves as part of the international E4F movement, with which we are in regular exchange.
Current global challenges such as the climate crisis, pandemics, social inequality and flight migration, as well as the associated economic crises, demand an economic rethink. Economic thinking must enable an economy that serves the good of all without exploiting nature and human beings. This requires democratic paths for a socio-ecological transformation. The development of a new economic understanding that finds answers to the crises requires a constructive-critical exchange based on diverse perspectives.
The E4F initiative group, which has been operating on a voluntary basis, is in the process of establishing institutional structures. Further information will follow. Questions, suggestions and support are welcome.
