GCET21: Twenty-First Global Conference on Environmental Taxation

Layout Builder

Dear GCET friends,

It is a great honor and pleasure to invite you to the 21st Global Conference on Environmental Taxation.

Unlike prior years, GCET21 will be a virtual event. Given that COVID-19 has made it difficult this year for people to convene from around the globe, the conference scheduled for Calgary, Canada, has been postponed until September 2021. However, we are delighted to organize a virtual meeting instead. We hope you will take part!

The central theme of GCET21 is Environmental Taxation in an Era of COVID-19. Abstracts and papers can be submitted within a broad range of related topics and environmental taxation more generally. The deadline for submission of abstracts is June 15, 2020. For more information about the Call for Abstracts, click here. In line with the tradition of previous GCET conferences, conference papers can be submitted for possible publication in the prestigious book series Critical Issues in Environmental Taxation from Edward Elgar publishers.

Because GCET draws participants from around the world, we plan to hold virtual sessions in at least two time zones to allow people from as many countries as possible to participate. Each session will be approximately three hours long during or at the margins of business hours. The sessions will occur on Thursday, September 24 or Friday, September 25, or both, depending on the response to the Call for Abstracts. Until then, please mark both days on your calendar.

Details about the program, technical arrangements for participation, and registration will be posted on this website as soon as they are available. If you would like to be added to the mailing list for email notifications, please send an email to entitled "GCET list addition."

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us. We hope that you will accept this invitation!
