Greening Economics, Greening Society: What is the Role of the EU?
9 - 10 May 2013: Guildford, UK
The UK-based Centre for Research on the European Matrix (CRonEM) is hosting a two-day workshop, which will assess how the European economy and society can be altered to adapt to the environmental crisis. The workshop is of interest to academics and policy makers in the fields of politics, law, psychology, environmental sciences/studies, business studies and philosophy. Read more…
CRonEM, part of the University of Surrey, is a multidisciplinary research centre recently set up to research European integration as a matrix of overlapping layers of governance, institutions and processes that shape how people in Europe live their lives. The workshop will address why little progress has been made to make Europe’s economies ready for change despite mounting evidence of ecological crisis. It will focus on the European Union not only as a transnational political system in its own right, but also as a major influencer within the global economic order and environmental policy.
Invited speakers include Professor Molly Scott Cato (Roehampton University) and Dr Miriam Kennett (the Green Economics Foundation). A policy-maker’s perspective will be provided by, among others, Dr Mikael Karlsson, President of the European Environment Bureau.
