This document includes all studying and teaching materials which were used during a Czech course on Local Economic Alternatives (Valeč, 18. – 22. June 2014). It consists of several parts: Basics of degrowth (theory), Local economics alternatives (examples of practice) in the degrowth context and Train-The-Trainer (TTT) module for future trainers of degrowth. These materials should be useful not only for the participants of the course but also for anybody else who wants to learn more, and possibly also discuss and teach about degrowth. Most of the learning part made use of the so called Reading and Writing for Critical Thinking (RWCT) approach.
