Welcome to YSI Sustainability Working Group!

The Sustainability Working Group explores how new economic thinking can contribute to the issues of environmental challenges, such as climate change, pollution, and the management and distribution of finite resources.

Welcome to the YSI Sustainability Working Group!

Here, we explore questions at the intersection of economics and sustainable development.
This working group aims to discuss and understand the linkages between society and the environment in their diverse dimensions.
We collaborate with other working groups to discuss how sustainability can be incorporated into all realms of economic analysis, in particular finance, urban development, and gender.

You can find our events, webinar recordings, and other resources on the right!

Contact any of the coordinators and organizers if you are interested in getting involved, have suggestions for discussions, readings, webinars or research collaboration ideas!
