Sustainability Network Online and ‘Face to Face’ Training: Economic Literacy for a Green Economy    Tue Mar 21, 2017, Online & Toronto, ON

Our Economic Literacy for a Green Economy online training course is now live but we would also like to announce that we’ll be delivering the same curriculum the old fashioned way as well this fall at CSI-Spadina in Toronto.

The program consists of a series of six modules that build organizational capacity by increasing the knowledge and understanding of economic concepts and their role in supporting a green economy.

The trainings takes a case-based approach to address key economic concepts, their assumptions, key measures and gaps, and their strengths and limitations. Participants learn about the latest innovations in the field that are relevant to a green economy:
- Assessing the strengths and limits of markets
- Valuing unpriced environmental benefits and damages
- Rewarding pro-environmental behaviour
- Reconciling trade-offs to inform public decisions
- (Re)defining economic progress and sustainability
- Reorienting the economy for the 21st Century

The instructor for both online and face-to-face offerings is Eric Miller, a consulting ecological economist and contract faculty at York University. He has experience serving the Ontario and Federal governments as a public servant and has helped hundreds of students through his teaching of undergraduate and graduate students at York University and Queen’s University. Eric earned economic degrees from York University and McMaster and a biology degree from Carleton.

The online training is self-paced with specially developed video tutorials and quizzes plus live one-on-one online coaching from Eric. Early registration is advantageous to ensure a spot and if you are interested in one of the limited number of discounted ENGO spots for those based outside the GTA – only 5 of these subsidized spots remain. The ‘face to face’ workshops will take place at CSI-Spadina between 1:00 – 4:30 on September 27, October 11 and 25, November 8 and 29 and December 13.
