E.F. Schumacher and His Legacy for the 21st Century
Edited By Hendrik Opdebeeck
We are grateful for the financial support we received from the Leopold Mayer Foundation to publish this book. The main objective of the Leopold Mayer Foundation for Human Progress is to support the emergence of a world community. It aims to engage not only the academic world but every kind of social and occupational group. The Foundation defines itself as a ‘human adventure’ developed over the long term in co-operation with public and private partners on the various continents. Furthermore, on the one hand, it considers itself to be a learning organization within which the management of memory plays an essential role, which it combines with the development of a co-ordinated strategy. The Foundation regards par- ticular initiative as a value in itself, but above all believes that true meaning emerges from the synergies which occur through interlinking with other initiatives. So its broad aim is through donations or loans to finance research projects and initiatives which are involved in ‘a significant and innovative way with the progress of mankind’. For more information on its mission and activities like the promotion of a Charter of Universal Responsibilities, see www.fph.ch and the appendix of this publication. We hope that this publication will contribute to the realization of this mission. — Hendrik Opdebeeck
