Economics and green policy seminars

July - December 2014
Economics and green policy seminars

These six seminars were designed for senior policy and political staff, in NGOs, business and think tanks, to provide a better understanding of the economic orthodoxies that underpin green policy and the arguments used to support or challenge them. 

At each seminar, Green Alliance’s chief economist helped to explore and explain key concepts, in conversation with an economic expert; with opportunity for participants to ask questions and join in the discussion.  

Topics and dates:

- Is ‘green growth’ just an oxymoron? (2 July 2014)
