Urban green growth: The Norwegian seminar on green economics

Past event

Urbanisation has the potential to be a strong enabler of a green, net-positive economy. However, on our current trajectory, cities are growing into 'more of the old', rather than providing the infrastructure for a better economy. This seminar - a collaboration between BI, UiO and IFE - will offer theory, practical examples and networking opportunities.

Key topics include:

  • Urban green growth within planetary boundaries
  • Six innovations for urban green growth
  • Applied green city economics - jobs, climate and energy

Key speakers include: 

  • Martin Stuchtey: Founder and Managing Partner at SYSTEMIQ, which works to transform markets and business models in land use, materials and energy.
  • Kate Raworth: Research Associate at Cambridge and Oxford Universities, and author of the hugely influential book "Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist".
  • Kathy Pain: Professor of Real Estate Development at Henley Business School, and Co-Director of the Globalization & Word Cities (GaWC) Research Network.
