13 August 2014 - 15 August 2014

logo-iseeThe biannual conference of the ISEE (The International Society for Ecological Economics) hosted by the University of Iceland 13–15 August 2014.

As economic, social and environmental systems worldwide face increasing pressures and the call for an alternative economic approach becomes louder, the ISEE 2014 conference aimed to provide a welcoming environment for critical conversations on the role and ability of Ecological Economics to provide paths and tools towards effective alternative solutions for the future – Towards Wellbeing and Equity within Planetary Boundaries.

To achieve this aim the conference concentrated on three overarching themes that all relate closely to the focal idea of the conference.  The themes are: i) Planetary boundaries and resource constraints, ii) Equity and economic development dynamics, and iii) A great transition ahead?

At the event CEEweb gave a presentation as well as exhibit a poster on the work of the Resource Cap Coalition.

ISEE holds its conference biennially. These conferences normally attract 500-900 social and natural scientists. In 2010 they met in Oldenburgl, in 2012 in Rio de Janeiro.
