European Union backing eco-economics

I have discovered that the European Union is backing research in ecological economics as well as related campaigns by non-governmental organisations (NGOs). The Civil Society Engagement with ECological Economics (CEECEC) is coordinated by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and involves organisations in Europe and beyond.

CEECEC is clearly intent on promoting green thinking rather than engaging in impartial research. However, its website is a useful resource for anyone wanting to study ecological economics.

For background on the subject a link to my essay on “the dismal quackery of eco-economics” is available in the “my essays” section on the left hand side of the homepage.
