Our aim is to reclaim economics, for all people everywhere, especially women and minorities, nature, other species, the planet and its systems, all underpinned by developing the complex mesh social and environmental justice together. It is to invent and to promote green economics as a new discipline and discourse.
It is to promote the ideas of social and environmental justice as being two halves of the same idea- you cant have one without the other.
It is intensely practical. Phase one was about spreading the idea around the planet which has largely been achieved, phase two is about implementation, including such ideas as democracy, innovation, green procurement, green IT, changes to transport, changes to distribution, changes to the entire way we do things
Changes to green solutions so they are completely inclusive of everyone and everything on the planet. Its about recognising that we are all connected and that we need each other and we need other species and we need the planets systems which we are all part of. In this recession and downturn its about understanding how to work together for a bright, healthy progressive and positive future for our species which lasts and which is fun and exciting and which works to help everyone especially those who don't have a voice on the planet. Its about managing our own impacts, our own economics needs and our own responsibilities.
Everyone and everything on the planet has needs, responsibilities and impacts. We need to ensure they can all happen together to benefit each other, not just using the economy and others as throw away imputs to a faceless uncaring economy but as a positive global force for changing the way we do things - for the better for every person, every species, every system on the planet.! The major stumbling block to this in the 20th century was the rise of the changed idea of economics- as a faceless exclusive alienating tool
The idea of the 21st century is a complete about turn - so that the economy and economics enhances all our lives and our existence on the planet as a force for good, even a high tech and accessible future for everyone and with everyone involved. We do this using progressive and beneficial economics. We named this -green economics. The economics of equality, equity and sharing ! We have spread this idea right round the globe and we are now consolidating it and implelementing it. Join us today and enjoy being part of the fastest growing movement around the planet! For a really exciting and visionary future!
