About this Event
Applications are open for the Oxford Summer School in Ecological Economics 2019. The dates are August 25-31, 2019. The executive School will be hosted by St Hugh's College.
The School 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 the current challenges: climate change, biodiversity loss, resource depletion, water shortages, social cohesion and achieving sustainability.
The course will be composed of a 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. A particular focus of this forum will be on the synergies between smart and sustainable dimensions in the urban context and how smart technologies could enhance in the urban sustainability performance.
