Sustainability Economics and Assessment (Seminar)

Dozent/in: David Abson

wöchentlich | Dienstag | 14:15 - 15:45 | 17.10.2022 - 03.02.2023 | C 12.108 | .

Inhalt: The course will draw on topics from sustainability economics (including notions such as strong and weak sustainability, natural capital, steady state economics and material and energy flow analysis); indicator theory; resilience and systems thinking and sustainability science. The seminar will start with an over view of the relations between sustainability and indicators and a discussion of indicator theory in the context of sustainability. Next key individual sustainability indicators such as the ecological footprint, the Gini index, the System of Environmental Economic Accounting (SEEA), and broader approaches such as EU approach to measuring progress will be critically examined from theoretical and methodological perspectives. Finally we will reflect on the role of assessment in moving towards a more sustainable world. Each seminar will consist of approximately one hour of lecture content and 30 minutes of group work/discussions.

Fundamentals of Sustainability Economics (Seminar)

Dozent/in: David Abson

wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 10:15 - 11:45 | 17.10.2022 - 26.01.2023 | C 14.201 | .
Einzeltermin | Mo, 30.01.2023, 14:15 - Mo, 30.01.2023, 15:45 | C HS 4 (Umbau HS-Gang bis 31.12.22) S. Kommentar | interdisziplinäres Abschluss-Plenum aller vier Seminare / interdisciplinary final sesson with all four seminars

Inhalt: Economics plays a crucial role in how humans understand and manage their interactions with the natural world. It can be argued that our current economic system (and the values and mind-sets that shape that system) are one of the root causes of humanity’s current unsustainable development trajectory. In this seminar we will explore, the underpinning assumptions of neo-classical economic (the dominant school of economic thought) and contrast this approach with ideas drawn from resource, ecological and steady state economics. Each of these schools of thought will be related to the notion of sustainability with the emphasis on what economics can tell us about both sustainability problems and sustainability solutions. The course will draw on topics ranging from the limits to economic growth, the ethics of placing monetary values on nature, strong versus weak sustainability, the economics of climate change, and notions of justice in relation to the allocation of economic resources.
