Living well within limits
ÖFSE Development Lecture 21
with Julia Steinberger, Professor of Societal Challenges of Climate Change, University of Lausanne, Switzerland
The event takes place in cooperation with the International Karl Polanyi Society (IKPS) and the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) and is supported by the City of Vienna.
What are the biophysical resources, more specifically energy, required to achieve human well-being? What influence do social and technical provisioning systems have on the levels of resource use associated with well-being? If remaining within planetary boundaries requires rapid decreases in resource and energy use, how could these scarce resources best be employed to enhance and preserve well-being? The 5th Vienna Karl Polanyi Visiting Professor Julia Steinberger will discuss her Living Well within Limits research project.
