Conference of the International Society for Ecological Economics which will be hosted by the University of Iceland 13 – 15 August 2014. The theme of the conference will be Well-being and Equity within Planetary Boundaries.
As economic, social and environmental systems worldwide face increasing pressures and the call for an alternative economic approach becomes louder, we aim to provide a welcoming environment for critical conversations on the role and ability of Ecological Economics to provide paths and tools towards effective alternative solutions for the future.
Towards this aim the conference will offer a combination of oral and poster presentations, keynote lectures from prominent scholars from within and outside our community, pre-conference activities and exciting off-venue excursions.
