The NCSE national conference is a place to explore issues of the green economy in both a short-term and long-term context. NCSE will engage leading thinkers and doers from a diversity of disciplines, sectors, and perspectives in a structured conversation about the meaning of the green economy and how investment in green education, research and jobs can help solve both the economic and environmental crises.
More than 1000 scientists, students, educators, policymakers, managers, and other citizens will come together to increase understanding of the relationship between economy and environment and will be motivated to help develop solutions.
NCSE uses a multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral approach that engages involved scientists and decisionmakers from a wide range of organizations. Our style is highly collaborative – we invite individuals and organizations to be full partners in developing the agenda and holding the conference. Our conferences are interactive, including stellar speakers, topical symposia to explore issues in more depth, breakout sessions to develop recommendations on how to advance science and connect it with policy and decision-making.
