This will be the 1st Sports and Environmental Economics Days (SEED) workshop, organized by IPAG Business School Paris. The idea is to have a workshop of two days (Thursday/Friday, ie 12/13th October 2017), followed by a sports event of 1 1/2 days (Saturday/Sunday, ie 14/15th October 2017). We are searching for high quality working papers in environmental economics, and for this first edition also for those who share our deep affinity for bouldering. The climbing level is not (that) important, but we put emphasis on the level of environmental economics.

Submit a paper or abstract to For any queries, send a mail to

There is, of course, a slight chance that the weather will be bad. In this case we will either continue the workshop with additional presentations, or go to an indoor climbing gym, or visit Paris.

Participants will have to bear all costs by themselves (thus travel, food, accomodation, etc.). We plan to rent a minibus for the climbing event, the costs will be shared among the participants.
