Overview: This first webinar in the USSEE series will provide a primer on Ecological Economics, with a focus on the foundations of the discipline related to environmental justice, and sustaining ecosystems that are becoming even more apparent and relevant in today’s world. The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting fallout have shone light on the ongoing disparities economic, health, social and ecological crises, their unevenness among multiple social lines, and the inability of a perpetual growth economy in remediating these crises. This inadequacy calls for the biophysical limits of the planet while centering equity in economic systems, which is at the core of Ecological Economics. This seminar will both cover the fundamentals of Ecological Economics and outline what an ecological economic response to COVID-19 might look like. The event will consist of approximately 40 minutes of presentation, followed by 20 minutes of open discussion.
