The Green Economics Institute works to change government policy and to implement their vision of a world where economics is changed and reclaimed for all people everywhere, especially women, minorities, and less able people, and people whose voice is not normally heard. It has been about fairness since the beginning.
It works to get gender equality as a major part of this as 70% of the worlds poor are women and also it works in all sorts of countries to help people to realise their own voice.
Our vast global network works as equals with mutual respect.
Our particular campaigns include: gender equality, stopping and reversing rapid and hostile climate change, reforming economics into a goals based discipline, reforming our ideas about philosophy, stopping biodiversity loss, stopping geo physical changes brought on by humans of the anthropocene, helping humans plan an economy that works within the comfortable bounds of nature and the planet allowing both to flourish, working to ensure green jobs and green careers are available to young people- and helping prevent youth unemployment, helping to ensure ordinary people have banks that help them and not speculation which robs them.Changing energy use to renewables often small scale and locally generated and changing transport from private car use to encouraging investment by governments into safe accessible viable and attractive public transport for the 21st century and the second millenium. Helping to ensure Europe and other trading blocks help the people in them rather than existing to promote large multinationals, helping to ensure tax burdens are bourne by those most priviledged who can afford them. Helping to create and ensure democracy in many countries where corruption is more prevalent than fairness and equality and rights to vote. Helping to prevent outsourcing of environmental and social and economic benefits.Helping to ensure the European area starts to manufacture and reverse -"the fall of the Roman Empire" and bring the Real Economy back to strength and vigour.Helping to reinvigorate eduction and science for all people in the European space and helping women and older people and younger people participate as they want to make their own contributions. Advising governments and international institutions about what greening the economy and growth and flourishing really mean.Helping to eliminate and above all prevent poverty- by controlling those forces that dont care about the outcome of their particular economics ideology. Creating a more efficient earth,nature and people friendly for the 21st century.
