Version 3.2_September 2016
Speaker: Joachim Spangenberg
As a biologist, ecologist and economist I am approaching new economy and degrowth issues from an interdisciplinary perspective. Being both a scientists and an activist with Friends of the Earth, that combines to a transdisciplinary approach.
My most recent work was on biodiversity loss (contributing to the IPBES-GA), and the role economic expansion plays in it. Currently I am involved in critical assessments of the bio-economy initiatives on the national and European level (part of the green growth policy), both scientifically and in campaigning.
