Summer Academy for Pluralist Economics

PLUSA 2024

25 August - 01 September 2024

Bridging perspectives, building solutions - Overcome differences for EU climate action!

Our Pluralist Summer Academy will start again this year – but in a different format than you probably know it. We have prepared another exciting program for you: a simulation game on European climate policy! Here you can slip into the roles of various interest groups and work out solutions with the help of (heterodox) schools of thought! That way you will find out more about pluralism in economics and learn about economic and climate policy. Sounds good? You will find more details and can submit your application below. This year’s Summer Academy will again take place in person in Berlin and will be accompanied by interesting side events.

Applications are open until Sunday, 16 June

What to know

We are trying to accommodate as many applicants as possible. The aim is to ensure that there will be lively discussions in each simulation game group. Our application process is designed to help us understand why each applicant wants to participate, why they are interested in a particular role and whether they will actively participate and contribute to the simulation game.

As part of the application process, we will ask you which role you are most interested in – so have a look at the document above in which the roles are described. You can indicate your first and second preference in the application form and we will do our best to assign each participant to their preferred option. Before you sign up, please make sure you are ready to participate for the whole week (25.08-01.09). 

You can also find answers to important questions in our FAQ!

We encourage German-speaking and non-German-speaking people from all disciplines to apply if they are willing to spend a week immersed in heterodox economics and climate policy with us. In case you have second thoughts e.g. about language barriers, knowledge gaps or because of mobility impairments or care obligations you might have we invite you to indicate it in your application or contact us. 

To apply, simply fill out our form:
