The ESEE is proud to announce its updated Country Contact Network to facilitate the transfer of information between the membership and the Board of ESEE. Country Contacts have been re-confirmed or nominated by the Board of ESEE in the following countries:
The Country Contacts will:
- Provide the first port of call to present and prospective ESEE members in their countries;
- Promote ESEE membership in their country;
- Provide and channel news, announcements and other information to ESEE Newsletter
- Represent the membership in a country towards the Board
The ESEE will:
- Facilitate and foster collaboration among the members through the Country Contacts;
- Seek consultation and advice of country contacts and membership in their countries in matters where geographic representation is important, such as preparation for elections;
- Use the Country Contact network for fact-finding and dissemination
- Support national activities and events of members in different countries on the basis of requests from national contacts by adopting, marketing and publicising them
The board of ESEE is happy to consider proposals regarding the appointment of Country Contacts for additional countries should the members in these countries prefer it.
Aims of ESEE
The aims of the European Society for Ecological Economics are to:
- foster transdisciplinary discourse and research among the social and natural sciences regarding problems of nature and the environment;
- provide an European network for activities in ecological economics;
- produce and disseminate information on policies for sustainability globally, nationally, and locally through electronic, printed, oral and other publication means;
- promote education, graduate research and research funding in ecological economics.
This statement of aims was adopted by the Inaugural General Meeting (Assemblée Générale Constitutive) of the European Society for Ecological Economics (ESEE), held on 24 May 1996, during the International Conference Ecology Society Economy / Ecologie Société Economie hosted by the Université de Versailles St Quentin en Yvelines, Guyancourt, France.
