World Environment Day 2012: United Nations Green Economy.

The UN Environment Program defines the Green Economy as one that results in improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. In its simplest expression, a green economy can be thought of as one which is low carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive.

Practically speaking, a Green Economy is one whose growth in income and employment is driven by public and private investments that reduce carbon emissions and pollution, enhance energy and resource efficiency, and prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services. These investments need to be catalyzed and supported by targeted public expenditure, policy reforms and regulation changes.

But what does all this mean for you? If the Green Economy is about social equity and inclusiveness then technically it is all about you! The question therefore asks you to find out more about the Green Economy and assess whether, in your country, you are being included in it. – Source Wikipedia World Environment day 2012

Green Economy: Does it include YOU?

The 2012 theme for World Environment Day is Green  Economy: Does it include you? Evidently, there are two parts to this theme and the first tackles the  subject of the Green Economy. This is where some people shut off their minds  because they find the concept of the Green Economy a little too complex to  understand.

On the contrary, the Green Economy is really something that is applicable  all around you and it is easy to imagine how you fit in it. Visit the ‘What is the Green Economy?’ page to read a layman’s narrative of this concept.

The UN Environment Programme defines the Green Economy  as one that results in improved  human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental  risks and ecological scarcities. In its simplest expression, a  green economy can be thought of as one which is low carbon, resource efficient and socially  inclusive.

Practically speaking, a Green Economy is one whose  growth in income and employment is driven by public and private investments  that reduce carbon emissions and pollution, enhance energy and resource  efficiency, and prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services. These  investments need to be catalyzed and supported by targeted public expenditure,  policy reforms and regulation changes.

But what does all this mean for you? Well, this  essentially what the second part of the theme is all about. If the Green  Economy is about social equity and inclusiveness then technically it is all  about you! The question therefore asks you to find out more about the Green  Economy and assess whether, in your country, you are being included in it.
