LARAMIE, Wyo. — A University of Wyoming professor is among 14 international scientists invited by the king of Sweden to take part in the Royal Professors' Symposium on Global Sustainability.

Professor Jay Shogren is scheduled to attend the symposium on March 22 at the Royal Palace in Stockholm.

The only economist in the group, Shogren will discuss the interaction of the environment and economics, and what it will mean over the next decade.

Shogren is chair of the UW Department of Economics and Finance. He has published many articles on the cost and benefits on how to control climate change.

He served as a member of the Royal Guest Professors of Sweden's King Carl Gustaf XVI (16) in 2007-08.
