About the talk

In this seminar, Professor Staffan Laestadius will discuss whether the magnitude of the transformation ahead - if the Paris targets to limit temperature increases to 2°C (1.5°C) are taken seriously – can be combined with (green) economic growth. The visions of a zero (negative) growth transformation to sustainability seem to be lacking among politicians as well as economists.

The presentation is based on a (at the time of the seminar) recently published book in Swedish.
