ISEE is a nonprofit organization that encourages the integration of social and natural sciences into a transdiscipline aimed at developing a sustainable world. A cross-disciplinary approach is necessary because conflicting perspectives in economics and ecology have led to economic and environmental policies that are mutually destructive, rather than reinforcing and sustainable. ISEE provides an international forum so that we might all better understand these issues.
ANZSEE is the Australasian regional chapter of the International Society for Ecological Economics. ANZSEE provides a focus in the region for activities in ecological economics including: fostering transdisciplinary discourse among the social and natural sciences; promoting education, graduate research and research funding. ANZSEE: organises a biennial conference on ecological economics; promotes membership and participation in ISEE; highlights Australian and New Zealand knowledge and experience in ecological economics, communicates regional ecological economics activity to people in other regions of the World; and provides a forum for discussion on ecological economics.
Established in 1946, The Australian National University is a unique institution within the Australian university system. The university comprises the Institute for Advanced Studies - Australia's premier research institution - and The Faculties that incorporate undergraduate and graduate teaching and research functions. The campus (Campus Map) is on a 150-hectare site in Australia's national capital, Canberra. It is a very attractive site, adjoining native bushland, Lake Burley Griffin, and the city centre.
Canberra, the capital of Australia, is located about 300km south west of Sydney. July is winter in the Southern Hemisphere. Because Canberra is high up, the weather is cool with an 11C (52F) daily average maximum and 0C (32F) daily average minimum. Rain is infrequent and sunshine plentiful. Coastal regions, such as Sydney, are much warmer in July. In fact it is an ideal time of year to take a trip to tropical and subtropical areas of Australia like the Great Barrier Reef or Kakadu National Park. Alternatively, the ski resorts of the Australian Alps are only a few hours from Canberra.
