Growth in Transition – International Conference 28 and 29 January 2010, Vienna

The Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management invites you to join us on 28 and 29 January 2010 for the International Conference “Growth in Transition” in Vienna. Growth in Transition is a project in cooperation with
SERI – Sustainable Europe Research Institute and Karuna Consult.

We raise the question: Does economic growth solve our problems (such as unemployment, increasing poverty or environmental pollution and consumption), or does economic growth cause these problems? In the light of the current economic crisis and the intensive efforts done towards economic growth, the question which kind of growth should be aimed for in the future and which aims should be achieved for this reason is more than ever arising.

The Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management has launched the project “Growth in Transition” to enter into a dialogue with as many institutions and individuals as possible to find ways to form this transformation process with a view to a sustainable future. In this context the measuring of wealth is also highly important. The outcomes of the Beyond GDP-Process of the European Commission are also taken into consideration.

The International Conference “Growth in Transition” will take place from 28 and 29 January, 2010 in Vienna. It is supported by numerous Austrian organisations and aims to start a wide debate on “Growth in Transition” with various stakeholders and to contemplate first approaches.

Please find attached an invitation folder. The conference programme will be regularly updated. A preliminary version is available on our website www.growthintransition.eu/conference.

If you want to participate in this important discussion, we invite you to discuss the topics and questions in the run-up to the conference on the Conference website www.growthintransition.eu, starting in the beginning of November 2009.

We are already at the stage of receiving bookings and we are looking forward to receiving yours.
