The Canadian Resource and Environmental Economics Association (CREEA|ACERE) will host its 31st annual conference, sponsored by York University’s Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies (LA&PS) and the Risk and Insurance Studies Centre, online on Oct. 1 and 2.

The two-day event aims to bring together scholars from across the country and beyond who work in the field of natural resource and environmental economics.

Ida Ferrara, associate professor in York’s Department of Economics, is this year’s conference organizer. Ferrara encourages York students to attend and says, “There is growing awareness of the urgency to collectively engage in positive action to save the planet, and the plea for environmental protection has never been louder.”

While virtual conference engagement can be challenging, this one includes a virtual dinner at the end of the first day, which kicks off the announcement of this year’s CREEA|ACERE Fellows: two scholars who have advanced the profession of environmental and resource economics.

The conference will be valuable to anyone working on, studying or interested in environmental issues. Learn more and register on the conference website.
