RESPONDER Final Conference in Brussels, April 2014

Expressions of Interest

The European project RESPONDER (http://www.scp-responder.eu/) deals with potential political, social and economic contradictions between sustainable consumption and economic growth. Contradictions are dealt with by trying to link 4 different communities: scientists and policymakers on the one hand, and on the other, what could be called the “pro-growth community” (mostly mainstream economists and policy makers oriented towards the EU Lisbon Strategy) and the “beyond-growth community” (mostly scientists and ecological economists highlighting biophysical limits to growth, social movements in several European member states and policy makers involved in the sustainable development debate). In order to do so, the European project RESPONDER is based on Knowledge Brokerage Events (KBE) that use the technique of System Mapping with participation of academics, civil society activists and policy-makers. Ten KBE have taken place since 2011 on a variety of topics in the framework of a discussion on sustainability and economic growth and two European dialogues. Neo-liberal, Keynesian and Post-Growth perspectives are welcome in the analysis on 1) the food system, 2) ICT technologies 3) transport, mobility, 4) housing and urban planning   5) household savings, financial and environmental sustainability. » Read the full article

Student and early career discussion groups and mailing list

To ease communication between student and early career ESEE members, we have set up an email list and LinkedIn discussion group in addition to the ESEE Facebook page. Posting on either is open to all subscribers. The email list is particularly meant for sharing events and announcement that may be useful to other ESEE members. The LinkedIn group is particularly useful for discussions and requests – e.g. you may be looking for useful paper references, you may be looking for help or feedback in preparing teaching materials, you want someone to informally review a paper, you may be looking for funding sources etcetera.
