About the Event
Join the Economics for the Anthropocene (E4A) and Leadership for the Ecozoic (L4E) graduate training and research partnerships THURSDAY, APRIL 9, 12-1:30 pm EDT for an “Intergenerational Conversation on Ecological Economics.” The Earth Institute’s Andy Revkin will be hosting as part of his #SustainWhat series, featuring post-doctoral and PhD students from the University of Vermont, McGill University, and the University of Waterloo. Research on care, production, energy, and food systems will be highlighted as key elements of the necessary economic transformation. Herman Daly and I will also join the call to reflect on emerging scholarship that is enabling a study and practice of economics rooted in principles of ecology and social justice.
