About this event
For the launch of the Ten thoughts on Growth report, written by the economist and environmental researcher Mikael Malmaeus and published by GEF and Cogito, we will be holding a webinar to discuss the concept of growth from different angles. When the vaccine has reached out in society we can expect a recovery of the economy. The European Green Deal is one of many initiatives on how we are to invest to come to a green recovery, but will we keep within planetary boundaries?
The discussion around sustainability and growth often ends up in confusion and locked positions. The purpose of this report is to clarify where we should reach consensus, and where we have the essential lines of conflicts in our thoughts on growth.
