There are a couple of conferences that you should definitely try to attend if you are an environmental economist.

Firstly, there is EAERE in Manchester, UK, 26-29 June 2019. That’s going to be the place to be if you want to meet everyone in environmental economics and drink good UK beer before Brexit destroys that opportunity.

Then you should go to ISEFI in Paris, France, 23-24 May 2019, which, apart from blatant advertising as I am one of the co-organizers, is also a great event if you are into finance, energy, and environmental economics. Plus you get the added value of a lovely weekend in Paris, and who could say no to that. Submit your papers asap.

Then there is IRMBAM held in Nice, France, 8-10 July 2019. If you are an environmental economist, send your papers to the sub-conference in environmental economics. I am a co-organizer of that together with Cees Withagen and Eric Strobl. Nice, needless to say, is nice. If you are drawn between the PET conference and our sub-conference at IRMBAM, then that’s already a mistake. Keynote speakers in our subconference are Carolyn Fischer and Anthony Millner. Submit asap.

Then there is the LEEPin2019: LEEP Institute’s Meeting of International Excellence in Environmental and Resource Economics, 24-25 June 2019, at the University of Exeter, which promises to be an excellent conference. It’s just preceeding EAERE, so you can basically city-hop from one great event to the next. Reduces shoe leather costs and minimizes your carbon footprint.

Then you should attend the environmental economics workshop in St Petersburg, May 31 – June 1, 2019, which is the 5th International Workshop on Economic Growth, Environment and Natural Resources. Unfortunately submissions are closed but you can still attend. I am also one of the co-organizers, and judging by the papers we selected this is going to be a classy event!

In addition there is FAERE held in Rennes, France, 29-30 August 2019. It’s the conference of the French Association of Environmental and Resource Economists. If you are into environmental economists, surprise surprise, or cathedrals, that’s the place to be at the end of August.

Now that you are up to date, carpe diem!
