Webinar: Economics for Sustainability Studies - Pathways for Economic Change

When: 6 May 2020

Where: Online

Appy by: Registration open

In this webinar, Tina Evans offers an overview of an upper-division course in sustainable economics for Sustainability Studies majors. As an interdisciplinary course rooted in biophysical economics, the course helps students develop broad conceptual understanding of current local/global economic systems, the monetary system, and mainstream economic thought and practice. Students learn how and why mainstream neoclassical economics is inconsistent with known science and incompatible with sustainability. This session also provides an example of a course simulation project in which students design a community-based complementary currency that could serve as a leverage point for increasing local economic sustainability and resiliency.
