SustEcon Conference

Freie Universität Berlin


On the 25th and 26th of September 2017, an international conference organised by NaWiKo, titled

„SustEcon Conference – The contribution of a sustainable economy to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals,”

will take place at the Freie Universität in Berlin, Germany.

The focus of the conference will be on the contribution of the sustainable economy to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This contribution can be observed on a number of different levels: Innovations toward achieving the SDGs are to be as much a topic at the conference as methodological questions about measuring sustainability. In addition to that, the differences between various discourses and concepts and their respective contributions to the sustainable economy are also to feature prominently in the conference. A further topic of interest will be the (political) framework conditions and barriers to a sustainable economy as well as the contribution of science to the SDGs.

A call for papers with detailed information about the thematic focuses and the submission of abstracts will be published soon.
