New Solutions to Avoid 'Tragedy of the Commons'
- 09-12-2016 19:00 - 20:30
- To be confirmed,
Hardin’s “The Tragedy of the Commons” first published in Science in 1968 is one of the most cited piece in the field of natural resource management. The commons dilemma stands as a model for a great variety of resource problems in society today, such as Water, Forests, Fishery and Non-Renewable Energy Sources such as Oil and Coal. The same challenge apply when it comes to limiting pollutions. All these challenges involve the management of “The Commons” – A Shared Resource.
As we are talking about our nature resource of today and future, are we doing better or worse than our ancestor? Which approach is more efficient: privatization or a strong government or community based rules? What does high level regulation means to business and individuals? Can we as users ensure a responsible way of utilizing resources?
