Green Economics: A Two-Day Training Intensive for Non Economists

Sep 20 2018 - 10:00am to 5:00pm
Sep 21 2018 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

Position yourself and your organization to be an agent of change.
Join other professionals and lifelong learners in this small-scale interactive course.
Learn about 5Rs for re-orienting the economy for a greener 21st Century.

This is 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. You will learn about ways to:

  • 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.
