Ecological Economics

Objectives of the Hub

The NENA Ecological Economics Hub was created to:

  • increase the awareness and understanding of ecological economics in Australian society, and across the NENA network
  • enable the introduction of key concepts of ecological economics into NENA's work, including: ensuring human economic systems fit within the productive capacity and limits of the living world; ensuring that issues such as ecological limits, ecological justice, ethics and sustainable population levels can be discussed in a respectful and productive way, and inform the development of new and alternative economic systems
  • contribute to the NENA Annual Strategy and longer-term transformational work.
