Call For Papers

Today’s environmental and economic debate places great emphasis on the need to direct society’s consumption and production patterns toward sustainability. In response to this challenge, high expectations have been placed on various forms of green, environmental or sustainable entrepreneurship, and so-called ecopreneurs, whose business models are guided by a vision to make a positive difference regarding environmental problems. In this symposium organized by Umeå University we will scrutinize the possibilities of transitional green and map possible paths ahead. The purpose is to advance ecopreneurship research by sharing where theory and practice is heading, and reflect upon the history of these developments.

We are looking for theoretically innovative and empirically strong papers to be presented in a creative, friendly and progressive academic venue. Papers in areas of transport, clothing, housing, renewables, food, and health are of special interest. You are invited to explore, but not be limited to: Re-­‐conceptualisations of green entrepreneurship; Ecopreneurship, CSR, and Corporate Irresponsibility; Indigenous Communities and Ecopreneurship; Sustainable business as Social Innovation; Resilience and environmental entrepreneurship; Permaculture as green entrepreneurship; Blue Economy; Degrowth; Sharing economy; Ecopreneurship and sustainability transitions.

The symposium will take place 3-­5 of June 2014 in the vicinity of European Cultural City of Umeå offering natural beauty, twenty-­‐four hours of daylight and ecopreneurship in practice. A number of challenging talks will be held by keynotes; paper presentations, walk talks and rhizome dialogues will be intertwined in the venue. Preliminary keynotes are Robert A. Isaak, Anne de Bruin, Günter Pauli and Torbjörn Lahti.
