SIRE Workshop on Well‐Being, Happiness and the Environment

This will be a two-day workshop, held on 8-9 April 2010, at the University of Stirling. The organisers are Nick Hanley and Mirko Moro, who thank SIRE for financial support.

Speakers include:

Prof. David J Maddison, University of Birmingham, UK
Prof. Heinz Welsch, University of Oldenburg, Germany
Dr. Liam Delaney, UCD Geary Institute, Ireland
Prof. Peter Martinsson, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
Prof. Katrin Rehdanz, Christian-Albrechts University of Kiel, Germany

The principal aim of this workshop is to assess the contribution of the recent economic literature that links directly self reported measures of mental health, life satisfaction or happiness to environmental quality. What can we learn on the relationship between environment and well-being from this literature? Can this data be used to inform cost benefit analyses and public policies?

The workshop is open to applied, theoretical and methodological contributions. Please submit your abstract by 8th March 2010 to mirko.moro@stir.ac.uk
