ESEE 2015 explored solutions for the transformation to a sustainable society, building on the distinctive contribution of ecological economics, by shining a spotlight on the interdependency of economic activity and natural systems, and identifying options that prioritise human wellbeing within planetary boundaries. The conference contributed to the dissemination of knowledge on these issues, through oral and poster presentations, keynote lectures from prominent scholars, and lively formal and informal discussions. It aimed to foster future research collaborations between academics and stakeholders, and to provide training and learning opportunities for younger researchers through an associated summer school.
Videos of the keynote and summer school presentations, together with papers from the conference, are now available at the post-conference website: http://www.esee2015.org
