Economy and green prosperities

We are in a stage of transition from an economy based on growth to one that preserves natural resources and cultural traditions, while at the same time enables innovation. This situation challenges the way we are thinking and behaving - politically, professionally as well as privately.

The seminar will focus on these problems from various perspectives by renowned specialists in the field.
