Short description:

The aim of the POLFREE project was to create, model and visualize scenarios for the emergence of resource-efficient economies, through linking quantitative economic and ecological models, and simulating the policies and policy mixes derived in the earlier work, The scenarios and associated policy analysis will be given an integrated interpretation across economic, ecological and social dimensions.
The aim of this workshop is to confront Austrian decision makers from business, administration and NGOs with these scenarios and to elaborate in a participatory effort concrete viable pathways for their organisations within the realm of the POLFREE scenarios.
