As waves of change wash over the financial world, another story is emerging about the significant,
if not dominant, role ecological resources play in a nation’s wealth and competitiveness.
Global Footprint Network is best known for bringing the issue of ecological overshoot to the fore among decision makers worldwide. During this roundtable discussion we will share our latest research on how ecological constraints are changing how we understand the success of nations.
Please join us!
