You are invited to join an important public workshop hosted by the School of Government, Victoria University:
Are there biophysical limits to growth?
If so, how should public policy respond?”
Economic growth has become culturally, politically and institutionally engrained at a global scale. Is that sustainable?
Four international experts:
- Associate Professor Simon Michaux (Geology)
- Professor Steve Keen (Economics)
- Professor Tim Jackson (Economics)
- Professor Susan Krumdieck (Mechanical Engineering)
will bring global and local perspectives on environment, resource, energy and economics to these two vital questions for open discussion.
