The Norwegian seminar on Green Economics

In a rapidly changing world, how can economics rethink the economy's relation to planetary boundaries? This wasn't important in 1900s, but is critical for the 2000s.

A policy direction that is smart, inclusive and takes advantages of "green" as the next big technological and market opportunity. We explore what role the State is in ensuring whether opportunities are taken, and the importance of direct public investment for promoting the creation of public goods and courageous risk-taking in research and innovation in both the public and the private sectors. This BI seminar gives you the theory, practical examples and mingling you need to get updated. The program may be subject to changes.
