Environment Europe summer course in Ecological Economics

On 4-10 September, 2016 Environment Europe will hold a summer course covering Green Economy, Environmental Policy and Sustainability Assessment at Balliol College, Oxford. It will address key elements of the new economy transformation, exploring the cutting edge methods and policy applications in ecological economics. With a clear sustainable development focus, it will draw on the expertise of a range of disciplines (economics, ecology, physics, environmental sciences, sociology, psychology, complex systems theory, etc.) to address current challenges (climate change, biodiversity loss, resource depletion, water shortages, social cohesion and achieving sustainability). The course will be composed of theoretical and applied modules and will address three key elements of the new economy transformation: an industrial ecology approach, multiple criteria methods for decision making and new tools for measuring progress.

The application deadline is 1 June, 2016. Early registrations will be taken until 15 June, 2016, and the deadline for late registrations is 15 August, 2016.
