Transforming Economies for Wellbeing: Sustainable Development and Ecological Civilization
October 27 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Our economic system is broken. It’s a system designed to grow profit and power for a few, through the exploitation of other people and the planet. Under the leadership of the United Nations, governments worldwide have begun to embrace a new vision for sustainable development. But what does sustainable development entail? What are the measures of a successful economy? How does the goal of wellbeing fit into the vision for sustainable development? Join us as we bring together experts from around the world for dialogue on transforming economies for the long-term wellbeing of people and the planet. Featured panelists include: Elliott Harris, Barbara Muraca, Yannick Beaudoin, and Kazunao Sato.
This panel is the latest installment of the EcoCiv Dialogues on Global Systems Change series, and is brought to you through collaboration of the Institute for Ecological Civilization, the International Council on Environmental Economics and Development, the Center for Process Studies, and the David Suzuki Foundation.
Moderator: Wm. Andrew Schwartz
