GREEN ECONOMICS INSTITUTE PUBLISHING HOUSE

Our books have authors from the Arctic Circle, indigenous peoples, people in all parts of Asia, China, Mongolia, Bhuttan, and right down to Australia, all over Africa and South America and The Carribean as well as the Americas and all over Europe.

The authors and our readers range from Ministers, MPs, Prime Ministers, Princes, Presidents, top United Nations Officials, governments, Professors,students, activists, ordinary people, famous people, unknown voices, very young, very old, very middle aged, but they all share one thing- the urge to ensure the planet survives, its systems survive, its life forms survive and its peoples survive. They all believe in social and environmental justice and equity and fairness.  They believe in a future with an economics of caring, sharing and supporting each other.

They all have their eye on the future but firmly rooted in the possibilities and tremendous opportunities of the present and all our teams are deeply practical as well as theoretically gifted and innovative.

Nearly all our readers and writers have chosen several different pathways for themselves- often living in several different communities and countries and environments and many have had challenging non standard lives which have lifted them out of the conventional in the box thinking to being able to see a wider and more long term cohesive and holistic picture of the world informed by deep practicality. Further we are a learning organisation and we never stop learning together.

Most importantly we have fun doing this and its very very uplifting to be able to change world narratives on a variety of connected survivability issues, from the Green Economy to the implementation of 2tonnesofcarbon by 2o22 and to women’s unequal pay and poverty… we set the sphere of the global discussions again and again. Dont miss out, if you have a vision of the future, for the future- please get in touch and join us today!

We have a range of over 100 publications, from the worlds very first and most influential Green Academic Journal, the International Journal of Green Economics, to our members networking magazine The Green Economist, our charity networking magazine, The Green Trustee and our Academic Conference Proceedings from all our many conferences held at Oxford University, our policy statement and information downloads, and our videos and flickr library pictures. We also have over 60 wonderful and unique books from our global voices.

In these books you can hear the views, voices and opinions of up to 40 different people from all walks of life, unedited, and from all the parts of the globe, so that you can start to have a really global perspective, from someone in Bhuttan who needs sanitation, to mental health issues in the mountain communities of Nepal, to the destruction of hurricanes in the Caribean or Fiji or the Philosophy in China and its mis understandings in the West, to Migration in Sicily and how local people help, or Technical change towards a 2 tonnes of carbon life style in Norway and also the effect of the melting ice on the Sami people in the arctic.

Its all there in our books, original authentic voices, way beyond what you normally read in the worlds media which is dependent on money, power and big business. We are a not for profit group and we work to ensure the world lasts and that its benevolent and fit to last, we advise governments from some of the very very largest to the very very smallest. We are not funded by any one or any group but exist with small individual donations and book sales and conference ticket sales, which means we can say what we really think and probably what you are really thinking but are either afraid to say or cant find a platform to say because it doesnt make money or line someone else’s pocket.

Its very exciting stuff and every book you buy goes directly to support our work in changing the world for the better.

We are always looking for new team members to help us produce, sell and write our books  and to help fund our work. All this work can be done by email and internet from around the world and most of our books are done by international teams working tirelessly on skype or email across the world which must make them completely unique and wonderful. So if you can give time or money or writing do get in touch with us.
