Ecological economics is a transdisciplinary science that addresses the co-evolution of natural ecosystems and human societies within the Earth System and underlines their spatial and temporal interdependencies. Searching for novel approaches for integrating economic activity and biodiversity conservation in a way that promotes human well-being, sustainability, and justice, ecological economics contributes to addressing ongoing global challenges of turbulent times, offering prospects for both political and behavioral responses to climate change, bio-economy or post-Covid-19 societal recovery. The session aims to address the significance of ecological economics for earth system governance and the question of individual and social behavior in transformative societal change towards global sustainability under the current Earth crises.
