The Emerging Leaders in Environmental and Energy Policy Network

May 19, 2014 to May 21, 2014

From 19-21 May 2014, ELEEP Members Janis Brizga, Deric Gruen, and Viviana Jiménez led and participated in an ELEEP mini-study tour focused on economic and monetary policy in England. The project centered on identifying and articulating insights on economic and fiscal issues that concern environmental leaders. The team interviewed leading UK thinkers and practitioners on issues of green economy, local currencies, sufficiency oriented business models, macro-economic and monetary reform, and other measures for a sustainable economic system. These organizations include the Green Economy Coalition (Institute for International Environment and Development), University of Leeds, Schumacher Institute, Bristol Pound, INSEAD, New Economics Foundation, Frugal Value, Positive Money, and the Centre for the Advancement of a Steady State Economy (CASSE). Several policy recommendations emerged from the experiences of the meetings which are attached. A ten minute film summary accompanies these recommendations.
