The Heartland Environmental and Resource Economics Workshop will be postponed until Fall 2022.

Dear Heartland Community,

While vaccination rates are on the rise, we realize that COVID continues to present challenges for the deep engagement and personal connection that have become a hallmark of the Heartland workshop.  With this in mind, we have decided to forgo a hybrid design in 2021 and will postpone the workshop until 2022. We look forward to seeing you Fall 2022!

From the Heartland Organizing Committee: Professors Amy Ando, Shady Atallah, Peter Christensen, Ben Gramig, and Madhu Khanna

Heartland Workshop in Fall 2022

The Heartland Environmental and Resource Economics Workshop will be held for the twelfth year at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Fall 2022 at the I-Hotel at the University of Illinois campus. Topics for contributed paper sessions will be chosen based on the submissions we receive and will not be limited in topic to the theme of the keynote and panel. The day-and-a-half long workshop (mid-morning Saturday through mid-afternoon Sunday) will feature:

    • A luncheon with keynote talk (Speaker and topic TBA)
    • A luncheon with panel discussion on “Multiple dimensions of decarbonization policy”
    • Multiple sessions of contributed 20-minute paper presentations
    • One set of 8-minute short research presentations
    • Research posters displayed during breaks and a reception
    • Numerous breaks to share ideas and develop new collaborations

The goals of HERE@Illinois are, as always, to stimulate research and build community in environmental economics with partial focus on the Midwest. The workshop will bring people together to exchange ideas and foster new collaborations. Through selected paper sessions, it will identify pressing public policy issues and emerging research themes on environmental and resource economics. Finally, it will provide networking and development opportunities for graduate students and early career scholars in environmental and resource economics.

Registration numbers are limited to keep the size of the event conducive to active exchange of ideas. Spread the word and tell your colleagues and graduate students! We hope to see you in Urbana-Champaign in October.

2022 Organizing Committee: Professors Amy Ando, Shadi Atallah, Peter Christensen, Ben Gramig, Madhu Khanna from the University of Illinois.

2022 Sponsors: The Department of Agricultural and Consumer Economics, the College of ACES Office of Research, and the Center for Global Studies at the University of Illinois.
