You can find out more about Schumacher, his life, his ideas and his work by visiting the celebratory centenary website: www.ef-schumacher.org. This site has been set up by his family with help from the international development charity he established: Practical Action (www.practicalaction.org). On the site you can also contribute your own views and ideas and start discussions with like-minded others.
