    Graciela Chichilnisky & Jan Rotmans
    Two Perspectives

    Vienna, March 12th, 2013

    Please find more information and lecture slides on our website: foreurope.eu/index.php?id=677

    Graciela Chichilnisky is the author of the carbon market of the UN Kyoto Protocol that became international law in 2005 and created the formal theory of sustainable development. She is professor of Economics and Statistics at Columbia University, renowned world expert on climate change and sustainability and director of the Columbia Consortium for Risk Management.
    “Economics has demonstrated itself inadequate to the charge of responding to systemic crisis. Some are led to question capitalism in response to crisis — but the fault may actually lie in our own limited view of economics. The economic and ecological realities of the twenty-first century demand new economic thinking.

    Jan Rotmans, professor at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, is the founder of DRIFT, Dutch Research Institute for Transitions and co-founder of Urgenda, a civil society movement that promotes a more sustainable future.
    “We live in transitional times in search for new value systems. This goes along with turmoil, uncertainty, lack of confidence, fear and impotence. From the transition perspective, […] crises are a chance for change since existing institutions are pushed and many embark on a quest for new values and norms.”

    Commentary by Kurt Bayer
    Emeritus Consultant at WIFO and for the WWWforEurope project
