Thank you for participating 23-24.01.2020. Next annual conference of the Estonian Economic Association on January 14-15, 2021

About Us

The theme of the 2020 conference was
“Sustainable Estonia”

Globally, the goals of sustainable development as society-centred “wicked problems” are more and more often discussed. Estonia’s new vision documents (e.g. Estonia 2035) are making sustainable development one of Estonia’s major challenges, but also a potential development driver. However, moving towards sustainable development models is a complicated social process, to which education and economists have to contribute more by supporting thereby moving towards a circular economy, sustainable resource use, etc. with their research papers and analyses.
