Long Term Economy e-learning platform was launched in November 2019. It is the result of a process which started in 2011 when Dario Ruggiero (independent researcher) founded the root causes of human unsustainability in Short-Termism (our society gives value to short term assets, e.g., profits).
Long Termism (a society which take decisions at all levels taking into account long term assets – nature, culture, social stability) is the solution. A process of research started to find professours, politicians and entrepreneurs which act according to Long Term Economy principles.
With the increase of followers, in 2017 a blog was launched were experts and passionated people could write their own articles. As blogger became more and more accustomed to Long Term Economy principles, the idea of certificating bloggers who have developed “Long Term Thinking” skill was conceived. It gave room for creating a more general e-learning platform.
