Open Call for Hosting the 8th Biennial USSEE Conference in 2015!

The U.S. Society of Ecological Economics (USSEE) Board of Directors has started planning our 8th biennial conference, and is seeking a conference site and local host partners! We are hoping to find an institutional host and venue that can continue to build on the success of our 2013 conference. Previous conferences have been held in June and attract between 200-300 participants. We are especially interested in bringing the 2015 conference to the West Coast, as the past four conferences have been held on the East Coast:

  • 2013 – Gund Institute for Ecological Economics, University of Vermont: “Building Local, Scaling Global: Implementing Solutions for Sustainability”
  • 2011 – Michigan State University: “Building a Green Economy”
  • 2009 –American University: “Science and Policy for a Sustainable Future”
  • 2007 – Pace University : “Creating Sustainability within Our Midst”

Attached to this email please find an overview of the committee structure and general timeline of conference planning tasks. The board will work with you to develop the conference theme and planning strategy and provide a full conference planning guide.

Please contact Executive Director Whitney Lash-Marshall at ussee2013@gmail.com as soon as possible if you are interested in this opportunity!
