When capitalism fails, as is inevitable, there will be need for people trained in a practical approach to putting a new and healthier social vision into practice. This course is the next step in several years of focus by Transformation Education to train practitioners in a working understanding of the PROUT paradigm of development. The speciality of this latest course will be its focus on the local and regional practice of PROUT.

Among the topics which will be covered are cooperative enterprise, principles of economic decentralization, integrated farming, principles of local developmental planning, solutions to water crisis, solutions to inflation, rural integrated development schemes, responding to economic depressions, bioregional movements, and phased approach to agrarian reform.

The PROUT Design Seminar 2023 will give participants working knowledge of the empowering concepts, principles and methods required to practically implement a transition to equitable and regenerative socioeconomic development.

The power of PROUT ultimately lies in acquiring a working knowledge of it functions as a socioeconomic paradigm and in applying this knowledge in transitioning to local economies that equitably meet human needs. As social, economic, and ecological problems grow, humanity is rapidly moving toward recognizing the need for a new social system. PROUT provides such a new social system.

Attending this course will require sincere interest. Participants will need to read about 10-15 pages of text every two weeks, participate in five small group discussions, and attend five full class sessions.

The learning methods of this course will emphasize participatory seminar discussions that explore deep understandings of the actual workings of a new type of socioeconomic development. Past course offerings using this learning format have been highly praised by course participants.

People who are interested in attending this course are encouraged to attend a free virtual open house at 10:00 am PST, January 21st that will provide an opportunity to meet the instructors, hear a short overview of the course content and process, and ask any questions about the program.
