The 9th edition of the Green European Journal has been released and deals with a burning hot topic: climate change and how we can ensure those in power take real action to tackle it at COP 21 in Paris next year. The next year will be critical for building a mass mobilisation across society, to voice this demand loud and clear.
The second print edition of the Green European Journal has a special focus on democracy and what it means for Greens – both as an ideal in the political imaginary and as an organising principle in the day-to-day workings of parties, foundations and informal civil society groups.
The articles in this edition fall into three main categories: a discussion on democratic principles; the role of Green foundations; and various democratic initiatives and experiments.
The 8th edition of the Green European Journal takes stock of the debate on Europe from several angles. From manifestos to political practices, it outlines key issues for the future of Europe.
How were the decisions of the EU shaped over the past five years, and what impact did the European Parliament have over them? Choosing dossiers on topics such as energy, digital rights, LGBT rights and social rights, we look at how MEPs succeeded and where they were held back.The edition also looks forward to the next Parliament. How to use the experience of the past five years to shape how the EU evolves, and what are the different parties offering in the upcoming elections?
How to create a financial system that helps, not destroys, the real economy? Seven years on from the financial crisis that heralded the great recession, this question remains unresolved. The 7th edition of the Green European Journal addresses the issue, highlights some Green ideas and shines a spotlight on the lobbying might that is working to prevent change.
Europe is still reeling from the financial crisis that began in 2007. Many economies remain heavily indebted, unemployment is unacceptably high and public services are continuing to be cut back. All the while, many in the financial sector wish to return to business-as-usual, accepting no responsibility for what happened.
What will industry look like in a sustainable economy? At a time when we are facing both an economic and an environment crisis, it is a question we cannot avoid. The 6th edition of the Green European Journal has a range of leading green thinkers and experts share their views on how Europe can remain a world leader in both industry and in combating climate change and environmental damage. They offer a range of ideas and also concrete examples of how the continent is marrying industrial and ecological innovation.
