The 20th Annual Conference of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE) will be held in Toulouse, France, on June 26-29, 2013.
Toulouse and the Midi-Pyrénées region are steeped in both history and today’s world. In this region, tradition and modernity meet, from the Cathars and the way of St. James to technical innovations and the space and aeronautic epic of the 21st century. Art and technology, beauty and efficiency mix harmoniously in Toulouse, and meeting here for a congress is a true pleasure for the participants.
Midway between the Atlantic coast and the shores of the Mediterranean sea, and at the foot of the Pyrenees, Toulouse occupies a privileged situation in Southwestern France and is an intoxicating experience for visitors who fall for the colorful charms of the aptly named "Ville Rose" (Pink City) and its Latin personality.
"La Ville Rose", as Toulouse is known for its distinctive pink brick architecture, will not fail to seduce you with its historical past as well as its resolutely forward-looking technological and scientific dimension. France's 4th largest city, Toulouse combines a rich historical and cultural heritage (the City Hall, Church of the Jacobins with its cloister, Saint-Sernin Basilica, the Bemberg Foundation, the "Musée des Augustins", the "Canal du Midi", the "Cité de l'Espace", the "Castle of the Counts of Carcassonne"...) and the delights of its world-famous "Gourmet cuisine" (cassoulet, foie gras)...
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to Toulouse. We are confident that you will have a truly memorable and rewarding stay in the "Ville Rose".
