The 1st ECO-SOS Workshop on Economics and Sustainability provides an opportunity to all those interested in the interaction between sustainability and economic growth and, in general terms to address global challenges faced by our economies when designing growth strategies. In this sense we want to analyse environmental implications of economic activities, quantify its negative externalities and provide proposals to achieve more sustainable growth scenarios.

The workshop is one day event, and the keynote speaker will be Richard S.J. Tol, Professor at the Department of Economics (University of Sussex) and Professor of the Economics of Climate Change (Institute for Environmental Studies and Department of Spatial Economics, Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam).
