Our climate work and policies at COP22 Marakesh UNFCC Climate Conference

Disaster:  We are now at 404 ppm  CO2! The world has not experienced such high  levels for 700,000 years. Ration our personal C02 use to two tonnes of carbon each. Limit climate change to 1.5 degrees of warming NOW. Potential Global warming warning today of    7 degrees &  sea levels are rising enough to start wiping out many countries, coastlines, small island states, & our entire civilisation in this century. Most major cities are situated by water, sea or rivers. More and more flooding, inland cities are already struggling to provide enough water for citizens and droughts, flash floods and extreme events are already coming.

 Health effects, (heart attacks) pollution, half of all species and animals on earth are being wiped out at the moment. Fish in the seas we take for granted all face extinction, coral reefs, and the list goes on.

Refugee and migration crisis has only just started. Mass displacement of human populations are already very evident.  It will become much, much worse as many of the  world’s regions turn too hot to grow food or to survive the blistering temperatures. Scientists are extremely worried that no current methodology is making the grade politically to stop runaway climate change. We need action now! Acknowledge climate refugees and  the role of climate change in today’s political landslides, tsunamis and crises.

Reduce  demand for energy, decarbonisation and an immediate switch to renewables and removing the perverse incentives to continue to use fossil fuels.

Governments to  chose now to move to 1.5 degrees implementation NOW– Not in the future. Each person to have a carbon ration of 2 tonnes of carbonNo embedded carbon in products being moved around the world.. Make it legally binding. We need a more equitable sustainable fairer economy, working within the bounds of nature for all people everywhere, nature, other species, the planet &  its systems.


Support our standing delegations to the United Nations COP Climate Conferences

We work tirelessly to stop runaway climate change and have a regular COP delegation. Our teams comprise some of the worlds best climate scientists, Nobel Prize winners & climate experts. The  UNFCC Climate Change COP Conferences are a really important democratic coming together of voices from all over the globe. This matters: Inclusion is the only way we can combat climate change. The vulnerable suffer more climate change effects. More women and children were killed in New Orleans for example.  We  therefore support  COP.

Much of the damage done to the climate is due to economics excuses and so together climate scientists, policy makers and economists must tackle and remove  vested interests &  perverse incentives and shift the world’s economy to a more sustainable trajectory. Global, united, urgent &  determined COP.

We would like to invite you to join us this year, and participate in the global transformation –

The reformation of economics for a fairer world.


Green Economics and The Green Economics Institute’s Work

The Aims of The Green Economics Institute are:

To  Rebalance and Reform Finance, Banking, Economics and the Economy.

To halt the rolling Tide of Climate Change, Halt the Mass Extinction of Species, Prevent Poverty and create an inclusive future looking economy for the benefit of all the worlds’ people, nature, other species and the planet.

To challenge the narrow scope, core and assumptions of mainstream economics and use holistic, inclusive and interdisciplinary explanations, instruments, and tools.

To reform mainstream and neo classical economics to provide equal access for all, whilst providing academic rigour of the highest standards in terms of new thinking in philosophy, methodology and ontology for economics. (Tony Lawson Cambridge University Economics tutor and writer believes we are leading change by example in this respect.)

     To found an inclusive, and progressive economics discipline based equally on environmental and social justice and on diversity which comfortably includes data and learning from other disciplines. We have managed to do this in the first 10 years of the Institute.

      We return to the fundamentals, basing economics on oikia, which means household or estate management. Indeed, the Earth is the household on which we all depend.

     The four pillars of Green Economics, in a framework of social and moral underpinning:                                       Policymaking, Campaigning, Business, Academic

Challenges we face ahead:  The world is undergoing social and environmental change and a global shift in power. Wealth is accumulating in fewer hands. Democracy is under threat. Globalisation has led to production being mainly in sweatshops in the East. The European Economy has been hollowed out.

The Green Economics Institute is an independent, international, networking body, working on the core philosophies of economics & ecological reality.
