“Economising with resources mustn’t lead to a diminishing of social and ecological values in society. It has to be zero sum game. And that is the great challenge,” says Agneta Sundström, senior lecturer in i business administration at the University of Gävle.
During 2017, the University of Gävle has arranged a seminar series on economic sustainability. The seminars have taken critical, transdisciplinary perspectives as their starting points and have explored economic sustainability in different contexts. Examples of such explorations are how economic sustainability affects ethical positions, or how it may lead to socially unsustainable effects. Another perspective was economic sustainability and its bearings on school development, to mention but a few.
“The purpose of the seminar series on economic sustainability has been to explore the interdependence between economic sustainability, on the one hand, and ecological and social sustainability on the other,” Agneta Sundström says.
“We would now like to invite everyone to a final workshop, where previous presenters summarize their lectures. These summaries are followed by a panel discussion where the issues are discussed in the plenary. The workshop will be in English.”
