ISEE2016 – Transforming the Economy: Sustaining Food, Water, Energy and Justice

As the Science of Sustainability, Ecological Economics must advance the transformation of the economy to support rather than debilitate the processes that sustain our living planet. Most fundamental to such an economy is its support of basic live support systems like food, water and energy, and its support of social justice and a quality life for all.

The 2016 Conference of the International Society for Ecological Economics (ISEE) will focus on these critical themes, and will facilitate dialogue between practitioners and researchers to advance such an economic transformation. The transformation agenda must include tangible solutions that support an economy that is in sync with the biological and physical systems of our planet, and that builds capacity for human well-being and justice.  Particular attention will be given to urban communities that are home to almost 60 percent of the world’s population and that are characterized by cultural diversity and social disparity.

Early Bird Registration closes April 25 !
