You are most welcome to participate in an Open lecture „Future Capital – Rebuilding the economy for the future“ on September 12 at 15:45–17:30.
The future of our planet depends very much on our ability to re-imagine and build a new economic system that is less about growth at all costs and more about regeneration of resources, benefit for all and sustainability and how stepping beyond a flawed assumption (Ergodicity) economists have been making for 350 years gives us an innovative route to the new economic system we need.
After the Open lecture there will be a discussion with the speakers and a possibility to ask questions. The discussion is moderated by the Vice-Rector for Research Maarja Kruusmaa.
