Environment Europe are delighted to announce that the 'Green Economy Reader' to be published by Springer is already available for pre-order on https://www.amazon.co.uk/Green-Economy-Reader-Ecological…/…/
With a foreword by Mr Achim Steiner, the Executive Director of UNEP, this volume aims to fill the gap in understanding ecological economics as one of the important foundations for green economy trend in the new economic thinking. State of the art in sustainability, inspired by interdisciplinary ideas of ecological economics, this book is focusing on sustainability pathways, new economic theory, democracy and institutions, multidimensional assessment of sustainability, macroeconomic modelling and policies, climate change and renewable energy, resource flows and circular economy, regenerative cities, environmental conflicts and values. We are hoping that this thought provoking collection of top level contributions will help facilitate a transition towards sustainability and educational reform.
The contributors include the stars of ecological economics: Professors David Orr, Peter Söderbaum, Robert Ayres, Herman Daly, Stanislav Shmelev, Stefan Speck, Herbert Girardet, Stefan Giljum, Terry Barker, Jeroen van den Bergh, David Elliott, Juan Martinez-Alier, Irina Shmeleva, Robert Costanza, Gar Alperovitz, Joshua Farley, Carol Franco, Tim Jackson, Ida Kubiszewski, Juliet Schor and Peter Victor.
The endorsements read:
A fabulous composition of papers by the authors who really count! Ernst von Weizsäcker, The Club of Rome
The authors present a refreshing perspective on the possibilities of human progress in harmony with nature, without the need for economic growth to secure long term human welfare and wise use of nature's services. Extremely relevant. Peter May, Past President, International Society for Ecological Economics and Professor, UFRRJ, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The book goes well beyond the Green Economy, offering arguments and blueprints for a complete makeover of the current economic system. With multi- and interdisciplinary contributions ranging from moderately to fundamentally critical of current economics, it raises fundamental questions of value and power, draws on a wide range of theories, opens the eyes for the historical processes that brought about the current crises and demonstrates the value of ecological, but also classical economic thinking to their solution. If better politics require better theories, this is a must read for academics and decision makers in the time of climate crisis. Joachim Spangenberg, Sustainable Europe Research Institute, SERI Germany e.V.
