What are the biophysical resources, more specifically energy, required to achieve human well-being? What influence do social and technical provisioning systems have on the levels of resource use associated with well-being? If remaining within planetary boundaries requires rapid decreases in resource and energy use, how could these scarce resources best be employed to enhance and preserve well-being? The 5th Vienna Karl Polanyi Visiting Professor Julia Steinberger will discuss her Living Well within Limits research project.

The event will also be available via livestream on the International Karl Polanyi Society website: Living Well Within Limits - International Karl Polanyi Society
