Welcome to the European Society for Ecological Economics (ESEE)!

ESEE is the European branch of the International Society of Ecological Economics (ISEE).

ESEE is a non-profit, member-governed, organisation dedicated to advancing understanding of the relationships among ecological, social and economic systems for the mutual well-being of nature and people.

ESEE publishes a newsletter and books (in association with various publishers); holds regional and international meetings; develops educational materials; and facilitates a voice for ecological economists in public forums.

ESEE provides a forum so that we might all better understand these issues. Add your voice to the discussion by becoming a member.
