Short description:

A transformation towards sustainability is only possible if ecological, social and economic factors are considered simultaneously. Especially when concerning the question of economic growth, it is evident, that well-informed (scientific) knowledge is needed in order to face the fundamental ecological and economic processes of change. The session discusses these multifold problems with a perspective on distributional issues. Economic and also a “ecological” distribution are important factors influencing the functioning and also acceptance towards a sustainable transformation of society.
In this session we bring together relevant knowledge and expertise from work of the Environment Agency Austria as well as the Vienna University of Economics and Business.

Organised by:

Vienna University of Economics and Business
