Economics of Sustainability Conference, San Francisco, Oct. 6-9

UN Climate Week and many environmental organizations are meeting this month in New York to catalyze action in dealing with the Climate Crisis. The Economics of Sustainability Conference, taking place less than two weeks after Climate Week, is a next step in addressing the most critical challenge of our time.

Naomi Klein says, “Dealing with the climate crisis will require a completely different economic system.” What does that look like?
How will we mitigate the effects of climate change in a way that honors the Earth and puts people before profit?

Conference Programs  include workshops, networking meetings, action groups, and outstanding presentations from economists, scientists, activists, and leaders in the environmental movement. The goal is to launch a platform for systemic change — economically, culturally, politically — and to network organizations for collaborative efforts in that pursuit.
