Beautiful Economy offers guest lectures, classes and week-long intensive courses on many topics related to economics and the transformation into a sustainable society.
Whatever the age, professional experience or level of knowledge in the field, I tailor classes to fit the audience as well as the programme in which they are embedded. Depending on the length and intensity of a course, I put together reading lists, video and audio materials, study guides or a full syllabus.
Topics of my classes range from social challenges and (un)sustainability, to money, interest and debt-based capitalism. Or from systems, complexity science and change, to values, qualities and true progress. What is central to all topics, is the challenging of our anthropocentric values-perspective, and the development of a more integrated, ecological worldview.
“Sarah has developed an admiring ability to use her own experience to connect with students at a fundamental level, and challenge them to become aware and even reconsider the values they often take for granted.”

Whatever the topic, I always intend to bring together a broad systemic understanding of the world we live in, with the questions and challenges this evokes at the personal level. I invite students to look inward & outward at the same time, aiming to expose the patterns of unsustainable behaviour that are ingrained in our society, as well as to inspire the quest for a beautiful future, in which every one can play a role.
I like to engage both the brain and the senses, and therefore hope to teach indoors as well as outside.
