VENUE: Room PHS07C50, European Parliament, Brussels
For years, the field of Ecological Economics has been developing research and analysis on strong sustainability, questioning mainstream economic approaches to the relationship between economics and environment. By integrating justice and time issues in its analysis, Ecological Economics is leading critical forward thinking and paving the way for an alternative development model.
But if the academics are moving, what about politics? This conference will bring together leading academics and policy makers to explore how and to what degree the core messages and methodological stances of Ecological Economics find an echo in policy agendas, discourses and instruments at EU-level.
