Stakeholder Forum is contributing to a weekend workshop and dialogue on the Green Economy. The workshop will take place in New York on 8th – 9th January, prior to the first intercessional meeting for Rio+20 on 10th – 11th January at the UN HQ.
The event is aimed primarily at think tanks from the global North and South, to promote discussion on how to stimulate the transition to a global green economy, and how to shift from old to new paradigms of thinking and operating. The event hopes to identify a series of possible principles and policy-levers that will help to enable this transition.
Stakeholder Forum is helping to facilitate the event, and together with the new economics foundation it will present its plans for a Global Transition 2012 coalition. Stakeholder Forum and nef hope to build an open and multi-stakeholder coalition to address the required elements of a Global Transition between now and the UNCSD in 2012.
The full agenda for the event is available here. Some helpful background papers on Principles and on UNCSD are available here.
