Reducing Inequality in a Sustainable World
March 5, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
Keynote Speaker: Sivan Kartha, Stockholm Environment Institute
Co-sponsored with the UC Berkeley Institute of Urban and Regional Development
As the global movement for sustainability is gaining steam, inequality continues growing rapidly. How can we slow inequality and poverty while increasing the sustainability of our living patterns and economies? This conference brings together economists, sociologists, ecologists, anthropologists, planners, and policymakers to outline the issues and discuss potential solutions. Three panels address sustainability and inequality from the perspective of cities and regions, measurement, and global growth. The goal of the conference is not just to expose the hard tradeoffs between environmental sustainability and economic growth and equity, but also to offer the possibility of transformation via alternative frameworks for measurement and action.
