Green investing: Putting your money to work for the environment

Decisions, decisions, decisions.  When it comes to making a positive impact on the environment there has never been more urgency or more agency for Albertans. There are so many decisions to make: what we eat, how we commute, where we shop and whom we create caring communities with.  This time of year, we also have the opportunity to think about where we invest our money and what we want those investments to support.

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.
