Using Market Principles to Create Effective Environmental Policy

This workshop will host two leading experts from Canada and the United States to talk about how free market environmental policies can achieve a variety of environmental objectives.

Free market environmental principles are straightforward, logical and lead to cooperative outcomes, in contrast to more typical top-down regulatory policies that are often zero-sum. The workshops’ objective is to provide a positive new framework for looking at environmental policy.

The workshops will cover: - What is free market environmentalism? - The role of markets and property rights in environmental conservation. - Examples of free market environmental policies. - Comparing free market environmentalism to more traditional government regulatory approaches.
