SUSTAINABLE CONSUMPTION 2008

CONFERENCE CALL

About the Conference

Building on the success of the “Sustainable Consumption in Hungary 2007” conference organised last December, the Institute of Environmental Sciences at the Corvinus University of Budapest, the Department of Environmental Economics at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, GreenDependent Sustainable Solutions Association, the HAS-ELTE Communication Research Group, the Association of Conscious Consumers and Central European University are organising an international conference on sustainable consumption. This year the conference will focus on the Central and Eastern European region and has the following objectives:

  • to review and summarise completed and ongoing research activities on sustainable consumption in the region;
  • to create an academic forum that can serve as the basis for professional communication and development in the field; and
  • to create an informal network of scientists who work and are interested in this field in order to share and promote knowledge about sustainable consumption.

This year’s conference is organised in conjunction with the annual conference of the Environmental and Sustainability Management Accounting Network (EMAN) titled „Measuring and Managing Business Benefits”.

The Programme of the conference is available here.
