Round table
"The future of the green economy", 19:00-21:00
The audience is offered a new book "Lectures on environmental Economics and sustainable development", published at the end of 2016 in Springer publishing house under the editorship of Stanislav Shmelev. The aim of the book is to fill the gap in understanding the green economy as a new trend in economic thinking in the context of sustainable development. The book presents the heads of leading experts in green economy, environmental Economics, institutional Economics, macro-economic modeling, natural resource Economics, experts in climate change, renewable energy, sustainable urban development and social aspects of sustainable development. Strategies and models of the green economy will be proposed for discussion at the Round table to facilitate the transition to sustainable development, and measures to introduce innovations in this area are needed.

From reviews of the book:
An excellent collection of articles by authors who really have to be reckoned with! Ernst von weizsäcker, club of Rome
The authors presented a fresh perspective on the possibilities of human progress in harmony with nature, without the need for economic growth to ensure long-term well-being and wise use of natural resources. Extremely relevant. Peter may, ex-President, international society for environmental Economics, Professor, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The book goes much deeper than the stated theme of green economy, offering arguments and scenarios for a complete reorganization of the existing economic system. Through multi-and interdisciplinary work, from mildly to fundamentally critical of the modern economy, it raises fundamental questions of value and power, builds on a wide range of theories, truly opens eyes to the historical process that has led to current crises and demonstrates the value of environmental but also economic thinking to address them. If better policies require better theories, this is a must-read book for academics and decision makers during the climate crisis.
