Environmental values and public policy in the face of social-ecological crises
Clive L. Spash is professor and chair of Public Policy and Governance at Vienna University of Economics and Business.
His main interests are human behaviour, environmental values and the transformation of the world political economy to a more socially and environmentally just system.
In this talk, Spash will be addressing the problem of value in environmental governance from the viewpoint that economists must stop ignoring the biophysical realities behind the biodiversity and climate crises.
An economics responding to these crises needs to understand both how the current economy is impacting on ecosystems and the basic structural mechanisms of the natural world, as well as understanding potentials that could be built on to create new and different kinds of economic systems.
The seminar is open to all.
There is limited seating.
There is a lift from ground floor to 1st floor but there are stairs by the entrance which limits access for wheel chair users.
We are happy to ease access by setting up a ramp before the event - we kindly ask you to contact us beforehand due to planning.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding access.
