The United States Society for Ecological Economics (USSEE) will hold its 2011 conference at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan from June 26 to June 29, 2011. The conference will be held at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center, which is located on the campus of MSU.
The USSEE is one of many regional societies within the umbrella society of the International Society for Ecological Economics (ISEE). All ecological economics societies hold professional meetings that serve as a forum for exchanging ideas, presenting cutting-edge research, and advancing practical solutions toward a future that is ecologically sustainable, socially equitable, and economically viable. This transdisciplinary approach to studying the integration of economic, social, and ecological systems brings together academics and practitioners from a variety of natural and social science disciplines.
Ecological Economics is the science of sustainability. The United States Society for Ecological Economics (USSEE) provides a venue for intellectual exchange and collaboration on issues related to the theory, policy, and implementation of sustainability and sustainable development. The society consists of a strong, interdisciplinary group of academics and practitioners who seek to develop solutions to our most pressing economic, social, and environmental problems, and who care about the well-being of the planet and its human communities.
