International Earth Condominium Conference. 16 and 17 January, 2013. Gaia, Portugal.

from: Soraia Taipa  
to Sustainable

Dear all,

On the 16th and 17th of January 2013 the International Earth Condominium Conference will take place in the city of Gaia (Portugal). Participation is free but subscription is required.

The Earth Condominium Project proposes that the world’s climate and oceanic systems are recognized as a Global Intangible Heritage of Mankind. This may form the basis for a legal framework and a common accounting system for ecosystem services. This will allow the economic value of these contributions to be integrated into the economy, moving towards an economic system that drives towards ‘ecosystem-service growth’, while maintaining the use of ecosystem services within a safe operating space.

In the upcoming conference we wish to create a space of open discussion that addresses the following main themes:

  • Natural Intagible Heritage of Mankind;
  • Planetary boundaries;
  • Economic externalities;
  • Failed markets,
  • Rights of Future generations;
  • World Environmental Organization.

The conference will take place in ‘Parque Biol├│gico de Gaia’. For a detailed program, which includes members of the panels and information on how to subscribe please check the following links:

We hope to see you at the conference!
