USSEE Conference and Call for Papers

Published: February 12th, 2013




The U.S. Society for Ecological Economics (USSEE) will hold its 2013 Conference on June 9-12 at the University of Vermont (UVM) in Burlington, Vermont. DMI is pleased to be a sponsor for the conference, which will be hosted by the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics. The event is organized around the theme of “Building Local, Scaling Global: Implementing Solutions for Sustainability.” It will aim to research and catalog sustainability lessons learned at local, regional, and state levels and identify solutions that can be scaled up.

The State of Vermont has been described as a “laboratory” for sustainability science and policy, with progressive programs in energy and land-use planning, ecological economic indicators to guide public policy, and a grassroots movement to transition to a post-fossil fuel economy. In the spirit of “getting on with sustainability already”, this year’s meeting will be organized around an emerging optimism that local solutions are bubbling up everywhere. 2013 is the year to synergize and strategize.

Proposals for paper, panel, poster, and workshop submissions are currently welcome, especially as they relate to the conference themes.

Please visit the Call for Papers page to submit your presentation ideas online. Abstracts are due by February 15, 2013. For questions, contact conference organizers at or call UVM’s Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at (802) 656-1353. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee, chaired by John Gowdy, former president of both the USSEE and ISEE.

USSEE 2013 is sure to be an enlightening and inspiring event. Please help spread the word!
