EcoModernism 2018: Achieving Disagreement

The Breakthrough Institute hosted the Ecomodernism 2018 dialogue on September 30 to October 2, 2018 in Virginia, USA. The dialogue provided an opportunity to take stock of how critical debates might be shaped to better advance human wellbeing and environmental protection, how policy initiatives might shrink the human footprint while raising economic productivity, and how cross-cutting coalitions of stakeholders and policy-makers might succeed in transforming environmental politics. It also provided a platform for participants to debate on several issues such as climate change, conservation, and urbanization. CSEA ‘s Research Fellow, Precious Akanonu participated in the debate on Energy for development.
