Alternative Economic and Monetary Systems, or AEMS, is an academic summer school that offers a new approach to solving economic, financial and social issues.

The goal of the summer school is to address some of the topical social problems by presenting viable alternatives to current economic models that are putting enormous strains on economic, ecological and social improvement. The summer school focuses on providng .
