Finance, Geography, and Sustainability: Workshop Day Two

Workshop Day Two Gordon Clark 9:00am-10:00am Innovation in Institutional Investment Gerald Epstein 10:00am-11:00am Banks Without Bankers Robert Eccles 11:30am-12:30pm Integrated Reporting and the Six Capitals Applied to Cities Sandra Waddock 1:30pm-2:30pm From Wealth to Wellbeing.

The series will bring together leading thinkers to address the crucially important relationship between finance, geography, and sustainability. In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis there can be little question of the importance of finance in the modern political economy. At the same time, the increasing significance of geographically grounded patterns of wealth and development inequality highlights the need for scholars and policymakers to address the relationship between finance and geography. Finally, the growing penetration of financial models and logics into environmental policy combined with the escalating consequences of environmental degradation (e.g. climate change) underlines the urgency of scholarly study on the linkage between sustainability and finance. The intent of this workshop is to break new ground, bringing these three issues together in a unique exploration of their interconnections. The workshop will be divided into three themes: environmental. social, and economic sustainability with a half day of breakout sessions and discussion across themes on the final day.
