Economic Theory for the Anthropocene: Towards Heterodox Understandings of Sustainable Economies
3 July 2018 - 4 July 2018
Achieving sustainable societies requires fundamental changes in the way we produce and consume goods. In short, sustainability demands a different kind of economy. And a different kind of economy requires a different kind of economic theory. Hosted by the University of Surrey and the Centre for the Understanding of the Sustainable Prosperity, Economic Theory for the Anthropocene will provide a space for researchers from a wide range of disciplines to develop this theory. This short residential workshop will be a friendly and critical space for researchers to present and discuss their early stage work on heterodox theories of sustainable economies.
