The Norwegian University of Life Sciences is organizing a summer school series in Environmental Governance. The title of the course is ‘The Green Economy’ and it is running from 16. to 27. June. The idea behind this summer school is to bring renowned researchers of environmental governance to work with a selected group of PhD students/young researchers from all over the world. There will be a series of highly renowned speakers at the course including Richard Howarth, Tim Jackson, Sharachchandra Lele, Sian Sullivan and Heidi Wittmer. The Summer School is established in cooperation with the Thor Heyerdahl Institute. The Norwegian research institutes CICERO, the Fridtjof Nansen Institute and the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) support the school by participating in planning and lecturing. The Summer School is also supported by the International Society for Ecological Economics ISEE , the European Society for Ecological Economics ESEE and the Earth System Governance Project.
