Editorial

In the light of the unforeseeable Covid 19 situation and the social and ecological benefits of online conferencing, we have decided to hold our flagship event, the EADI-ISS joint conference "Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice" in July 2021 completely online! Our latest blog post explores the many benefits online conferencing can bring. As the end of the year is coming close, we haven't got any new virtual dialogues to look forward to in the coming weeks, but we've just uploaded the recording of Nicky Pouw introducing her book on wellbeing economics, ready for a weekend watch! Our thematic focus is on climate today, and as usual we've got much more to explore below.
The decision to shift the conference to the virtual space was not an easy one. After all, the event had already been postponed for a full year, as we had been hoping for a physical conference in the Hague after being in a lockdown for an extended period. However, the increasing global uncertainty caused by the Covid 19 pandemic forced us to decide otherwise. We would like to make the conference as inclusive as possible, so we have chosen the most reliable solution and the best chance for wide participation from scholars from the Global South. Meanwhile, like everybody else, we have explored innovative, interactive, and lively online conferencing and networking tools and formats and hope that the  advantages of online conferencing can compensate for the disappointment not to be able to meet up in person.

From our Blog: Online Conferences as a Roaring Success
How Moving (Academic) Conferences Online Could Help Address Social Injustices
Everybody knows the environmental benefits of online conferences, as they reduce air travel which is a major driver of global warming. And there's more to it: holding conferences in the virtual space can not only "help address social injustices, in particular economic and social barriers to participation", but also be a "roaring success", as our latest blog post by ISS PhD Fellow Dennis Penu shows. Penu has observed that participants who would otherwise not be able to join "contribute some of the most original and case-sensitive analyses of social and political science, thereby contributing to the academic debates upon which associations (...) thrive".

Latest Virtual Dialogue to Watch Online
Towards a Wellbeing Economics. How And Why We Need To Do Economics Differently: watch Nicky Pouw from the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR) introduce her new book, suggesting a fundamental rethink of how we perceive the economy and the ways we practice it.  Her design of a 'Wellbeing Economics Matrix' lays the foundation of a robust methodology for analysing distribution and sustainability questions upfront. Dr. Hannington Odame from the Centre for African Bio-Entrepreneurship gives additional perspectives from a Kenyan experience. Watch the video  and read the related blog post

Featured EADI Member: Sustainability Research Institute
We are proud and happy to welcome the Sustainability Research Institute at the School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds, as new EADI member! The institute explores a wide range of issues including climate change, energy, transport, water, resource use, land use, conservation, cities and communities, business and lifestyles. It  specialises in participatory, action-oriented research that brings together government, business, NGOs and local communities to enhance the relevance, quality and practical influence of our research. Recently, it has lead a groundbreaking global study which came to the conclusion that global energy consumption in 2050 could be reduced to the levels of the 1960s and still provide a decent standard of living for a population three times larger!
