  3. This will be very useful for Business Master Students, specialization in Ecological Economics.

  4. I strongly believe that for the future of the Earth it is fundamental that economy shifts into ecological economy. This handbook is for sure great contribution to that much needed shift.
    It reflects diverse ecological issues that the world is dealing with now but also provides tools how to encourage “bottom up” changes in economy.
    Handbook is very much needed and up till now missing tool that I am sure will be used in future both within civil society and academic circles.

  5. The handbook made available by CEECEC as a resource will be very useful for everyone who wants to understand basic concepts of Ecological Economics. The Ecological Economics concepts are very well presented through case studies that have been drawn from across the world. The method of introducing concepts and issues through case studies ensures that they are understood in the right perspective.

    It is very important that these concepts and issues are made available to everyone in the society so that more and more people understand human relationship with the environment. The range of topics covered and case studies in the handbook are diverse and applicable to all people irrespective of whether they belong to, the developed, developing or the under developed country.

    The glossary is exhaustive and will help the reader to go deeper into the dimensions of introduced concepts and case studies.

  6. “The CEECEC handbook : Ecological Economics from the Bottom-up” is a very useful and complete resource, especially for civil society organisations involved or working on environmental conflicts.

    Its structure based on the articolation of ecological economics concepts and tools first presented through concrete case studies and then developed in-depth in the glossary part allows to convey academic and activist knowledge in an accessible way.

    We recommend this handbook to both students, researchers and social organisations for studies but also and especially to develop activists competencies and to enlarge their range of action, for example in campaigning.

  7. Friends,
    I want to congratulate you for the excellent work compiling, editing and completing the useful Handbook on ecological economics! We are going to include a link in the Ecological Debt Campaign web page.

  8. Congratulations for the team that have been working on this important tool and finished it.
    This CEECEC handbook : Ecological Economics from the Bottom-up is a new interesting aproach for a better understanding and necessities of civil society engaged with the resolution of environmental (social) conflicts.
    The rising process beyond growing economy with other alternatives for a better utilization of environment following the steps of an integrated human well being, green economy and a decoupling process between environmental impacts and quality of life for millions of human beings, find in this work another interesting tool to help to change the things and minds
