The Green Economy Pocketbook; the case for action
A green economy is about a different way of doing things. It is about recognising that our economies need to be guided by different goals, they need to be sustained by different activities, and they need to deliver different results.
The Green Economy Pocketbook: the case for action describes a vision for change. Drawing lessons from our series of national dialogues in developing and developed countries and from across the Coalition’s diverse membership, the pocketbook describes examples, stories and glimpses of a transition that is already underway.
This is the most succinct but comprehensive understanding of a green economy drawn from a global and multi-stakeholder perspective. It connects the dots between the many different actions going on at all levels – civil society, government, finance business – to show how it is possible to transform our economies so that they work for people and planet.
‘Uniquely, we have brought together diverse organisations and agendas into a concise vision and practical actions to deliver wellbeing for all while respecting ecological limits’ says Oliver Greenfield, Convenor, Green Economy Coalition. ‘This is the taster of a new economic order that is both possible and necessary. We invite everyone to join the debate and be part of the transition’.
