The Recycling Revolution
Green Economics is designed to benefit, all people everywhere, the planet and its systems.
Green Economics aims to prevent further runaway and catastrophic climate change, to prevent further poverty, to prevent the further mass extinction of species and it tries to do all this by means of reform of economics from outside and within the disciplines.
We therefore invite you to contribute to our forthcoming book, The Recycling Revolution which will be published in June 2015 so we need your papers and book chapters in by latest April 30th 2015, you are welcome to send them in before that. Please check that with us that your idea is suitable by emailing the address below.
All our books are “Open Source” which means we invite up to 30 people to contribute a chapter from around the world making this a book of voices on each subject who speak about the different and complimentary human experiences and share the global humanity of each issue. Our books are written by people from all walks of life combining global experts with a number of high profile specialists, government, Ministers, young people, older people, people involved as consumers, farmers, producers, and academics, students and policy makers, campaigners and possibly some business people. We invite you all to make a contribution to this global voice on restoring economic health to our planet and to our economy!
