Green Economics is one of the fastest growing global movements for change which has been taken up by many governments and NGOs and is having a huge influence on the worldwide social and economic landscape. It seeks to reform the very concept of economics itself by creating an entirely new discipline which is designed to help all people everywhere, prevent poverty as a given assumption, consider other species, nature and the planet and its systems.

Green Economics is for all people everywhere, nature, other species, the planet and its systems as beneficiaries- not just as throw away imputs to a mainstream economy. Its for everyone and everything on the planet.

Mongoose February 2014

The climate has started to change and is more unstable. Human civilisation has built up over the last 10,000 years since the last ice age. If we mess with the climate that nutured us and our way of life- we enter unknown waters and we have no roadmap to guide us. In an age of rising sea levels we are in danger of drifting way out of our confort zone. We think we should be trying to halt further runnaway climate change, rather than increasing its velocity.

About the Green Economics Institute

Bridging the gap between the technology, output and culture from the old economy to the philosophy and production modes of economies of the 21st and 22nd centuries: dont miss out on our ground breaking activities and innovations!

Miriam Kennet and Ben Armstrong-Haworth our Management team members at the House of Commons.

House of Commons

The Green Economics Institute has been spreading ideas of reform and a Renaissance in Economics and is leading thinking in this new global transformation. We are now an international network of 15000 people, and we aim to change the world through this revolutionary way of thinking: Green Economics. We are achieving this by running lectures, organising conferences, briefing governments, teaching and educating and of course writing and publishing our own books and journals. The 21st century has marked an incredibly new and powerful age of Global Transformation-the Age of Green Economics.

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 include 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.

Members of our global network works as equals with mutual respect.

Saving Europe:Creating a Social and Environmental Ethic for the Citizens of Europe to feel a sense of belonging

Aims of the Green Economics Institute

1. We aim to create a new discipline in economics called "Green Economics"

2. We aim to create a climate where the reform of mainstream economics seems natural and the right thing everyone wants to do

3. We aim to put social and environmental justice at the heart of economics and financial practice, policy and theory

4. We aim to create a Renaissance in Economics -unpicking economics theory and text book assumptions to enable change to happen in the real world and the real economy

5 We aim to build a global network of Change Makers who can make this happen

6 Our network is diverse, and colourful and representative of ordinary people. We believe this is the future. Our network is gender balanced and we want economics and finance to start being like this everywhere

7. We want to stop runnaway dangerous climate change and instability and to advise people to start calculating their own carbon and reducing it

8 We want to stop the current 6 th ever mass extinction of species and halt biodiversity loss, we need other species and we dont want to be alone on this planet. We know the economy wont work without other species. We want to educate people about this

9 Our network is inclusive and includes people with special needs and we value everyone- not just the greatest happiness of the greatest number- we believe everyone and everything on the planet matters.We dont scramble over the voiceless to get to power- we include everyone who wants to make a positive contribution. We want to prevent poverty- not just to offer solutions to cure it.Therefore we work on the causes of poverty and the powerful interests that create " haves" and " have nots " and we try to unravell this.

10 Many of our network come from humble backgrounds and have had challenges and personal struggles in their lives of all kinds- we believe this makes them richer thinkers and we value that insight that each person brings. We aim to transform the lives of our network members and also of others with whom we come into contact.

In Reforming Economics and Finance and also to create a climate where economics and the economy create a much nicer and more inclusive world, where caring, sharing and supporting each other is the norm and accepted as the way to be.

We work to create social and environmental justice together.

We are not satisfied with mitigating the effects

We exist to create a framework for a complete change in the way we do things and the rationale and philosophy and structure of the economy. We are credited with creating the academic discipline of Green Economics and now we are busy implementing these ideas around the world and influencing the debate, policy makers, governments and the worlds shapers and movers.

Our Trust exists to provide education in this field.

We work through our international Institute, we are a registered Book Publisher and we have founded a unique academic Journal now in its 8th year.

We are also an Educational Institute and College and a leading international network of Innovators in all aspects of Green issues.We are a great place to study and we publish a new kind of open source book with lots of voices from all around the world. We are involved in all aspects of change from Research right through to implementing practical and applied change.

We also have speakers, lecturers and tutors available and we provide training courses and education in settings all around the world. We run regular and frequent conferences all around the world and often hold them at Oxford University.

GREEN ECONOMICS INSTITUTE'S GLOBAL CAMPAIGNS AND POLICY MAKING

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.

Our current campaigns include Womens Unequal Pay and Poverty- how to prevent it- we are very active in this and have won awards

We are working to implement a green economy in Africa- our book Green Economics Voices of Africa is now available

We are working on the Eurozone crisis and its implications: we shortly have briefings and books coming out about that

We are working on the Green Built Environment - ensuring the green economy is part of the physical fabric of our lives and we have a book out about that- The Green Built Environment

We work on preventing dangerous and inhospitable climate conditions and reversing climate change -and we have a book out about that Green Economics and Climate Change

We also look at the way equality can be implemented and work on a citizens income with Clive Lord and our book Green Economics and a Citizens Income is out now

We do this by producing policy, advising on policy, running campaigns, writing and compiling our 4 book series- Reader Books, Handbooks, Philosophy of the 20th and 21st Century books, and Green Economics and Sustainability Book Series and also our academic journal International Journal of Green Economics, and our Members global networking magazine The Green Economist and occassional papers and Green Economics Briefing Papers.

We also run our own courses for older people, younger people, people all over the world and in all countries, and bring together visionary and innovate change makers: people from all over the world and all over Europe, to plan and innovate, changing the worlds economies as we do it!

We also run such courses for governments in the past Italian government,Nigerian governments, Dutch governments, UK governments, Balkan governments and many others all over the world.

We speak in various parliaments and governments around the world to create an atmosphere and incubating change and work with young revolutionaries in the rapidly changing geo political environment in the Middle East offering them hope and vision for changing their society.

We provide support for minority campaigns.

We are working on the green economy-Features, theory, practise, methodology and implementation to ensure its a version that allows for flourishing, equality and fairness and is above all inclusive and we have the Green Economics Reader, The Handbook of Green Economics, and Green Economics Methodology Books coming out about those.

Above all we advise governments how they can change and implement the green economy and we advise students and academics at all levels how to do this -and what a green economy actually is: we have a Masters course and short introductory courses for that.Please email to enquire for details.We also give lectures, speeches and training, all over the worl in Universities and Governments from China to South America and Africa- please email to request a world class trainer, teacher, lecturer, speaker, Professor, policy maker or campaigner.If you wouldlike our help to make change wherever you are: email us at greeneconomicsinstitute@yahoo.com and discuss your requirement with our CEO Miriam Kennet who just won an award for creating global inclusion in the world economy!

Our Aims

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!

What is Green Economics? An age of global transformation- An age of Green Economics

Green Economics positions economics within a very long-term, earth-wide, holistic context of reality as a part of nature in the longer term and as a blueprint for 21st century economics practice in the shorter term. It moves economics from an emphasis and outcome of military, sex and cars, with Fordist and Taylorist high mass consumption of the 20th century into the economy of the 21th century which has a completely new aim and objective, for provisioning for the needs of all people everywhere, other species, nature, the planet and its systems as beneficiaries rather than throwaway inputs to the ceteris paribus economy of homo economicus and ruling man and his preferences. Economics is no longer about men in business suits- arguing over supply and demand curves and models. Economics is reclaimed as something that everyone and everything on the planet practices as all have impacts and all have needs, all have responsibilities and all have spheres of impact.

Economics goes back to its roots- as a discipline of household and estate management - oikia- rather than being predicated on greed, profit and price- with its joint roots in ecology.

By combining economics with knowledge from the natural sciences, Economics can now incorporate a much wider, more practical, holistic, and pluralist multidisciplinary range of knowledge than other schools of economics under a heterodox umbrella. Green Economics can offer unique insights into four of the key areas ('eco', intellectual, political and moral) of today's significant and mounting problems and highlights how its novel insights provide new solutions.

The development of this new branch of Economics critiques the main contradictions, deficiencies, assumptions, conventions, and inherent normative concepts found in dominant neo-classical economic thinking, which have accumulated over the past two centuries and reassessing the world undergoing social and environmental change.

It develops these themes further in order to achieve simultaneous social and environmental justice, as inseparable parts of a whole. Green Economics looks for solutions that simultaneously address poverty,( one fifth of humanity), current dangerous runaway climate change and instability and ending the current mass extinction of species ( currently there is the 6th ever on earth mass extinction event going on ) within an equitable and future proofed framework.

Green Economics is extremely forward thinking, long term, hi tech, futuristic, technically competent, ( many of our board have degrees in economics and Phds or other degrees in earth science or physics). Many are also literate in social science, many specialising in new ways of examining -truth and reality in both the social and physical world, using new innovative more up to date methodology. Our project is nothing less than to re-conceptualise the philosophy of economics and its and our place in the world.

As such a particular aspect is to re consider the role of economic growth, the role of GDP, and the role, structure and outcomes in the real economy of production, Foreign Direct Investment, speculation, land use, construction, property, procurement, logistics and supply chains and accounting as well as IT, and computer uses and intellectual property issues. Practises we use include everything on open source, and using slow travel in our work as well as web cams, web seminars and open source publishing. We have one of the largest green websites with free up to the minute global news and information. We also believe in local production for local needs, efficiency for appropriate supply, eg milk and vegetables being produced locally, energy being produced locally where possible and SMART grids being implemented. We are also exploring higher tech solutions. However, climate change will lead to huge areas of the world being uninhabitable or unsuitable for growing food and we are committed to a sharing methodology for all of humanity - rather than a l"and, forest and food grab" of assets by the rich and powerful.

This means global solutions for global problems such as poverty and it means working much harder to prioritise the Millenium Development Goals especially the education and empowerment of women and girls. It has been suggested (McGlade) by the European Environment Agency that educating and empowering women - would alone reduce the population projection down from 9 billion to 7 billion humans. This alone would allieviate huge amounts of hardship. We advocate empowerment of women and girls and the single most important piece of work to be done in the next few years - which will have direct benefits for all of us on the planet. Men currently own 99% of the worlds assets and this patriarchy and accumulation needs to be urgently rebalanced into a more sharing and caring economics practis.Most of the worlds poor are women and many women are poor. Poverty is a highly gendered situation. Many of the main victims of aids HIV today are women and many of the main victims of disasters from the Tsunami and other natural disasters are women being poorer and often more directly dependent on the natural world. Women are still dying in huge numbers in pregnancy and child birth all over the world. There were more slaves, mainly women, in the 20th century than ever before- far from eradication of slavery - it is thriving and has a very gendered aspect and needs urgent re- abolition - this time for good!

Green Economics has also been termed -The economics of sharing -so it addresses now forms of distribution and also the economics of doing- as it is now a major player in many governments around the world, in the race to become green and to use Green Economics and the green economy as the one ray of hope in ending the current economics downturn and setting trends for 21st century economics and provisioning over the century for the needs of all people everywhere, other species, nature the planet and its systems and in fact provisioning for the comfortable survivability of the human and other species. Governments all over the world are falling over themselves to understand this programme and message- do ensure you don't loose out!

It aims to innovate in methodology of economics, theory and practice making economics acessible for everyone. We are actively changing the culture of homo economicus and making economics broader and more socially and environmentally just.Our Sustainable Development Economics courses include robust, lively and enjoyable training in development and in women's economics, environmental change and social justice. We do this using participatory methodology.

We want to transform economics to enable it to provision for the needs of all people everywhere, nature, other species, the planet and its systems.We want economics to benefit these groups rather than being throw away inputs in the service of faceless policies.

"We're now on the threshold of a global transformation- the age of green economics" Ban Ki-Moon General Secretary of the United Nations.

The Green Economics Institute advises governments around the world and provides advise about dealing with the current crises in economics, climate and biodiversity as well as poverty and inequality. We help people future proof their economics with an eye on weathering the current economics downturn and laying the foundations of future sustainable prosperity for themselves and their family, their company or their country.

10 Key Values of Green Economics

1. To provision for the needs all people everywhere, other species, nature, the planet and its systems, all as beneficiaries of economics transactions, not as one-off inputs.

2. To reinforce an underpinning of social and environmental justice, tolerance and no prejudice and creating quality of life for everyone, including current and all future generations, and regardless of age.

3. To ensure the recognition and respect of other species' rights. To end the current mass extinction of species and ensure the survival of Earth's biodiversity.

4. To create an economic system which advances non-violence and the inclusion of all people everywhere, regardless of special needs or special ability. To ensure that all nations have equal access to power and resources on a finite planet, and that local people to have control over their own destiny and resources. To eradicate poverty, increase life expectancy, human welfare and real well-being in the least developed countries.

5. To guarantee gender equity in all activities, educating, respecting, empowering women and minorities, and ensuring that all people valued and respected equally.

6. To end high mass consumption and the current overshoot of Earth's resources, returning human civilisation to the comfortable bounds of nature in its original climatic conditions. To choose lifestyle change over techno-fixes and eco-technology, lowering individual carbon usage, living lightly on the earth.

7. Changing how economics is done: from being an abstract mathematical exercise to embracing the real world we all live in, recognizing that we are all concerned as stakeholders.

8. Climate change prevention, adaptation, mitigation. Protecting the most vulnerable from risk. Ensuring the future of small island states. Quickly reducing carbon per capita globally to 2 tonnes in the next 5 years and zero soon after. Limiting and reversing climate change. Moving to renewable energy sources.

9. Future-proofing economics to increase its suitability for the 21st century, solving the current economic downturn and widespread uncertainty. Creating and nurturing an economy based on sharing, rather than greed and profit.

10. Completely reshaping and reforming economics to do all the above.

We trained at the Women Leaders Event last year for top civil servants on the importance of the role of women in the world economy at the National Government School. We have lectured at the Oxford University European Affairs society on gender and its importance, and have also taught the staff at GCHQ about the importance of this issue for global security. We were published in the New Scientist, in an article about the importance of gender arguing that this is the single most important issue for the future. We are also working with women around the world in many different countries to change the global economics representation. We were part of a delegation to No 11 Downing Street in the UK to speak to the chancellor and we spoke in the Treasury about Green Economics.

4 .March 2015 Annual Green Economics Institute, Green Economics a 3 Day Conference to be held atOxford University. Call for Papers and speakers and workshops is now open.Please send your papers and abstracts to GEIBooksandjournal@yahoo.co.uk

The Green Economics Institute Conference every year, is the main forum where the development of a major economics alternative to the main stream is created by global innovators from policy making, politics, NGOS, campaigners and academics and students all come together to make waves of real change in the world. Your voice really counts at the conference.

This year it seems the tiny seedling we had created and nutured of "Green Economics" has come of age and is nearly 15 years old and so has entered its adolescence. Hence there are fascinating tensions between the claims for it of corporations who are wanting to use it to carry on with business as usual, and campaigners who want to use it to change the world and to solve contemporary problems- namely- runnaway climate change, population and equality and empowerment of women, minorities and people with dissabilities and special needs and inclusion, and also the problems of the 6th ever mass extinction of species, and the terrible economics downturn.

The East and Asia have also adopted a "green economics narrative" largely taking the environmental out of our " social and environmental narrative" whilst the west has adopted the social- (countries like Norway) but still kept the oil addiction and not yet really embraced the environmental bit.Most countries are still running business as usual banking and economics but all are putting a toe in the water of green economics.

Paid up Participants at many of our events will receive proceedings. All our events have lead to books or will lead to books in the future and many are used by global policy makers and governments around the world! All participants are invited to participate in these campaigns and projects which make global waves of change! All are welcome to submit chapters, articles, ideas, papers, and for more information

Miriam Kennet, Our CEO, visits the London Stock Exchange Protest outside St Pauls Cathedral

We are glad to see that the eviction order has been delayed as we are seeing a global movement asking for change in economics practise and theory- and this cant be quelled by force- only by progress- green economics offers such hope and so the protesters and visitors were exceptionally keen to use and to propose green economics as a solution.

See the photos from the protest. Or see the photos tab at the top of this page where they are all displayed as well as visiting the Green IT conference.
