Urban green growth: The Norwegian seminar on green economics
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.
