Village Vancouver

Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities

Ecological and New Economics Study Group


Ecological and New Economics Study Group

This ongoing Village study group and think tank collaborates to develop a new economic development model for Vancouver, BC, and Canada focussed around balancing economic development, ecology, and social equity. A formal applied course in Ecological Economics launched in the fall of 2012 and again in fall 2013 as a beginner and advanced course, with the expectation of lobbying governments at all levels for specific policy or new bylaw support.

This is part of the Economics and Livelihoods Group.
