Steady State Economy Working Group: About
|WG Home||About||Membership||Annual Meeting||News||Contact|
The Mission of the Working Group for a Steady State Economy is to address the conflict between economic growth and wildlife conservation. We support a steady state economy as a sustainable alternative to perpetual economic growth.
The WGSSE began with a symposium on economic growth sponsored by the Local Governance Working Group at TWS 1998 annual meeting in Buffalo, New York.
The number of people concerned about the conflict between economic growth and wildlife conservation, and the recognized need for a position statement on economic growth, led to the formation of WGSSE.
The working group was chartered as an official working group by TWS in 2006.
