Green Economics: A Two-Day Training Intensive for Non Economists – Vancouver (ENGOs)
Join Sustainability Network on February 20 and 21 for a two-day course that combines lectures, group-work, and reflective exercises. By the end of the course, you will have a better understanding of economic concepts and information relevant to a green economy.
- retrofit markets and environmental policies – by reducing the depletion of common-pool resources and rewarding the supply of public goods;
- rethink valuation of environmental benefits and damages – by better understanding scarcities, values, and the consideration of ecosystem services;
- reward pro-environmental behaviour – by affecting prices, quantities, and behavioural norms that reflect the pro-social orientation of humans;
- reconcile trade-offs to inform public decisions – by choosing appropriate decision-support frameworks and discounting approaches;
- redefine economic progress and sustainability – by recognizing what is included, and omitted, by old and new measures of economic performance.
