Presentation

Christian Arnsperger is professor of sustainability and economic anthropology at the Institute for Geography and Sustainability (IGD) of the Faculty of Geoscience and Environmental Studies (FGSE). He holds a PhD in economics from the University of Louvain (Belgium) and has been teaching and researching for many years at the interface between economic analysis, human sciences, and existential philosophy. A specialist of post-consumerist/ post-growth economic alternatives and of the link between ecological transition and the change of mentalities and lifestyles, he is also a scientific adviser to the Alternative Bank Switzerland (ABS) and, in that capacity, he develops "action research" field projects and collaborations in the area of sustainable finance.

At the IGD, Prof. Arnsperger more specifically centers his activities around the following areas:

  • Spatiality and territoriality as factors of ecological sustainability
  • Sustainability of lifestyles, sustainable consumption, and existential economics
  • Money, finance, and sustainability: Towards a "monetary eco-geography"
  • The cultural roots of unsustainability in the United States
