The European Society for Ecological Economics is a scientific community specialised in the integration of ecological and critical social perspectives in economics. We believe we have academic credibility to legitimise real-world systemic changes and take scientifically informed political stances. But we could do much better to spread and clearly communicate ecological economics ideas, to bring them to life, on the ground, in people’s everyday lives. This episode’s guest is Erik Gomez-Baggethun and we talk about ecological economics and why we believe that we need to open up spaces for frontier debates.

The world is on fire. We have to radically and rapidly transform every aspect of society to stay within 1.5 degrees of global warming. How is this possible? And how do we do this in a way that is fair? Ecological economists integrating ecological and critical social perspectives have long been working on ideas to bring about just sustainability transformations. This podcast aims at communicating these ideas in order to open them to critical discussion, from global problems to people’s everyday lives.
