The 17th Biennial Conference of the International Society for Ecological Economics will take place in Colombia during the week of 23rd -28th October 2023. The conference is organized by an inter-institutional consortium composed of the following Colombian Universities: Universidad del Magdalena, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Universidad de Los Andes, and Universidad del Valle, and by the Mesoamerican and Andean Societies for Ecological Economics. The conference will have two main events, starting with a specialized course for decision makers from across Latin America and other stakeholders, to be held on the 23rd and 24th of October in the capital city of Bogotá, followed by the main conference, comprised of academic sessions and dialogues between ways of knowing, which will take place in the Caribbean city of Santa Marta, from the 26th to the 28th of October.
The conference will employ several innovations inspired by our shared experiences of mixed formats in recent years: sessions will be organized around both regular and special tracks, as well as by format-free events. The latter include courses, workshops, and artistic interventions. Regular and special tracks will consist in a series of sessions for discussing pre-recorded presentations. A platform for uploading and watching pre-recorded presentations will be available on this website. Participants are expected to watch the presentations before attending the in-person conference. The conference will be fully in-person (there will be no hybrid sessions). The mixed-format environment of the conference will enable us to allocate more time to Q&A and discussion during the in-person sessions.
