The race for greener economies is now on and gathering pace. The GEC, the world’s largest multi-stakeholder network working on green economy, is committed to accelerating the transition to a green and fair economy.
We are mobilising activity amongst stakeholders;sharing experiences and policy practices across our global network; and influencing key decision makers at the local, national and international levels.
We believe the transition to a green economy requires five interrelated action areas (that we call our big picture): measuring what matters; influencing financial systems; greening high impact sectors; investing in people and managing natural capital. We are working across all of these action areas and drawing the connections between them. Our activities include:
Coordinating multi-stakeholder national dialogues on a green economy
Researching and identifying policies necessary for the transition
Representing the voices of stakeholders in national and international processes
Engaging new target audiences in the opportunities offered by a transition
Lobbying key decision makers
We are convinced that change is possible. We know it is necessary. We invite you to be part of it.
