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.
This edition focuses on four key debates that the Green European Journal has identified as being crucial to the future of Europe: federalism; sustainability; solidarity; and hospitality. These four debates are gateways to penetrating the transnational complexity of the green debate, interconnecting national public spaces where debates on the fundamental issues for our future are still being carried out.
What is the future of our relationship with food and agriculture? That is the topic of the 5th edition of the Green European Journal “Food: the (agri)cultural revolution”. The issue contains a range of articles covering all aspects of this diverse topic, including CAP reform and the ongoing horse meat scandal.
Can an economy and society really be sustainable without being equal? And do inequalities within and between Member States threaten the future of the EU? These are some of the questions posed by the 4th edition of the Green European Journal, which also continues the debate on Europe with a section discussing federalism.
The focus of this edition is on the debate over economic growth – can economic growth continue? And if not, what alternatives might exist? Can we encourage green growth, or should we look for economy that is entirely different? These issues are considered in the 3rd edition of the Green European Journal, along with a continued focus on the debate over the future of Europe.
