Economics: Sustainable Use of Natural Resources

Björn Vollan is professor and head of the research group "Sustainable Use of Natural Resources" at the University of Marburg. As scholars in Sustainability Science our group is committed to interdisciplinary work, using a mix of different theories and methods while our strength is the development of experimental designs applied in the field. Our work fits most in the categories of Ecological and Behavioral Economics. With our research and teaching we aim at pointing out pathways for more sustainable behavior that may contribute to a larger transformation of society that cares about sustainable resource use, environmental justice and life satisfaction.
