Ecological And Feminist Macroeconomics
Online Summer Crash Course 2021
How can we provide a good life for all within planetary boundaries? A recent article in Nature Sustainability (O’Neill, 2018) argues that “No country in the world currently meets the basic needs of its citizens at a globally sustainable level of resource use.” This summer workshop offers a crash course on both ecological and feminist macroeconomics. Moreover, it invites participants to reflect upon the convergence between the two. The intention is to contribute to macroeconomics able to face the challenges of the XXI Century. These are well reflected by the Sustainable Development Goals. Particular emphasis will be paid to ecological sustainability, gender equality, and their intersections.
Academic Coordinator: Dr Federico Demaria, Serra Húnter assistant professor in ecological economics and political ecology at the Universitat de Barcelona Department of Economic History, Institutions and Policy and World Economy.
