When: 22.-24.02.2016

Where: Campus WU

 Our understanding of the natural constraints of our planet is continually growing and deepening. What prevents us from making changes to our lifestyles and economic activities and especially from placing them on a sustainable footing? Why is no change of direction taking place?

The third international Growth in Transition Conference in Vienna at Europe’s largest university of economics includes panels with inspiring speakers, fascinating breakout sessions tackling different aspects of the Conference theme, participatory conference formats and the opportunity to exchange insights with leading figures from the spheres of politics, science and civil society.

 Outstanding speakers, such as Tim Jackson (Professor for Sustainability, University of Surrey), Sigrid Stagl (Ecological Economist, WU), Hans Herrn (Recipient of the Right Livelihood Award, Millennium Institute), Martine Durand (Chief Statistician OECD), Gerald Hüther (Professor for Neurobiologie, University of Göttingen), Shalini Randeria (Rector of the Institute for Human Sciences), Hans Bruyninckx (Head of European Environment Agency) and many more already confirmed.
