Evening Program

The evening program is a key component of the Online Summer Academy. On Saturday (July 31) and Thursday (August 5), participants will be given the opportunity to get to know each other beyond their workshop groups and topics.

For the remaining evenings, we have planned intriguing panels and lectures that are of interest to all participants and the public. We will be joined by speakers who are experts on and passionate about the questions at hand. They will share their views with us and are looking forward to discussing with the Summer Academy's participants. The lectures and panel discussions will be made publicly available so that participants from all time zones can benefit from them.

Is ecological economics for rebels? Accounting for natural resources

(lecture and open discussion)

Dr. Anke Schaffartzik (Institute of Social Ecology, Vienna)

7:00 - 8:30 pm (Berlin, UTC+2). Other time zones  

Ecologcial economics conceptualizes our society as embedded within the environment and our economic system as embedded within society and the environment. This may seem only logical but in fact is a proposition that is irreconcilable not only with some of the tenets of neoclassical economic theory but also with any growth-based economic system. Natural resources - in their materiality, not (only) in terms of their monetary value - as part of economy-wide accounting allow us to observe close ties between economic growth and the 'Great Acceleration' and provide support for the degrowth agenda.
