ECOPRO (Ecological Production) is the successor of the previous SERIND project and nine Green foundations from different regions and member states of the European Union (Austria, Belgium (Flanders), Croatia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Spain (Catalonia) and the United Kingdom) are involved in exploring pathways for a transition towards ecological production as part of a sustainable economy that is low-carbon and fosters an equal society.
Further information about the ECOPRO project is available on the website of the Green European Journal here.
Amongst the range of expert speakers at our Dublin ECOPRO Seminar, which was chaired by Duncan Stewart (Environmentalist, Broadcaster and Chair of GFI), were: John Barry (Professor of Green Political Economy at QUB and Director of GFI); Martin Charter (Director of the Centre for Sustainable Design at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey); Ichin Cheng (originally from Taiwan and is Director and Co-Founder of Sustainable Innovation Lab in the UK); Sandy Dunlop (Terenure Initiative); Tommy Simpson (Projects Co-Ordinator at GFI) and Bernie Walsh (Sunflower Recycling).
As always, an important part of our Seminar was the Q&A session which allowed full participation by those attending.
