Australia New Zealand Society for Ecological Economics would like

A Climate for Change" in the Sunshine Coast of Australia. The

is now 20 years since the publication of Our Common Future launched
the idea of 'sustainable development' and called for integrated approaches
to the relationships between societies, economies, and environments.
While 'sustainability principles' are now embedded in law and policy
frameworks at local, national and international scales, 'sustainability
practice' remains elusive. Dramatic changes in trajectory are required
over the next 20 years to reduce pressures ecosystems, avoid dangerous
levels of climate change, and address poverty and disadvantage.
conference will unpack the nature and scale of the sustainability
challenges, showcase the types of analysis and understanding that
are required to address them, and highlight practical ways in which
sustainability might be reinvented so that it moves from rhetoric

Eighth Annual Global Conference on Environmental Taxation, hereby
issue a call for papers for the conference Innovation, Technology
