New report: Towards a socio-ecological transformation of the economy. Institute for Ecological Economics. Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU).

On November 14-15, 2018, the 4th International Conference on ‘Growth in Transition’ took place in Vienna, Austria, under the auspices of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism. The Institute for Ecological Economics at Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) was commissioned to prepare a background report for the conference, entitled ‘Towards a socio-ecological transformation of the economy’.

The report, edited by Stephan Lutter, Fred Luks and Sigrid Stagl, elaborates the state of knowledge, research challenges and possible political implications in six selected fields of key importance for realising a successful socio-ecological transformation: (1) Sustainable natural resource use, (2) Macroeconomics and the environment, (3) Finance and sustainability, (4) Sustainable Consumption and Production, (5) Sustainable work, and (6) Transformative learning.

The background report can be downloaded from the Growth in Transition website here.
