Greening industry is crucial to our ability to combat climate change and maintain a prosperous society. But to achieve this, we need a whole new relationship with the environment.

‘Make Do and Mend’: Industrial Conversions and Sustainability Transitions

Volume 6, 29/10/13

Authors: and

Today’s mainstream economic debate around investment vs. austerity is failing, but a truly comprehensive Green New Deal could offer the alternative. The right support from the EU and national governments could encourage different structures of business ownership, focused on sustainability and social ownership that will help the transition to a truly sustainable economy.

Volume 6, 29/10/13

Authors:

Translations: ES   PL  

Can Europe’s economy remain competitive without a low-carbon transformation? The answer is a clear ‘no’. How then can we achieve such a reality? Only through a clear change in Europe’s budget priorities and a range of innovative measures.

Miners and greens unite!

Volume 6, 29/10/13

Authors:

Translations: PL  

Greens need to forge a broad alliance against neoliberalism with some unexpected allies, such as the coal miners. Ahead of COP 19 which takes place this year in Warsaw, Poland how can the green movement in Poland move forward?

The Aspirations of the Green Industrial Revolution: a Historical Perspective

Volume 6, 29/10/13

Authors:

Translations: PL  

The Green Industrial Revolution is clearly a positive and inspiring story, but there is room for doubting the ability of green technologies to stimulate a new wave of growth comparable to the industrial revolutions of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Towards a Green renaissance of European industry

Volume 6, 29/10/13

Authors:

Translations: NL   PL  

Green industrialisation is not only about developing green jobs in some well delimitated sectors. It is about transforming and reinvigorating the whole European industry. True, the future competitiveness for European industry will be built on sustainability. But how much re-localisation and globalisation will this imply? A debate between Natalie Bennett, leader of the Green Party of England and Wales, and Reinhard Bütikofer, MEP and co-chair of the European Green Party.

Government procurement: how the EU is giving away a fundamental industrial policy tool

Volume 6, 29/10/13

Authors:

Translations: PL  

Government procurement has long been used to help further public policy goals and European countries such as Italy and France are willing to still use it today to support renewable industries. However, at the European level something quite different is afoot that threatens the ability of procurement to be used to develop industry.

Cities as Eco-factories of the Future

Volume 6, 29/10/13

Authors:

Translations: PL   DE   ES  

As the world rapidly continues to urbanise, cities will have to play a progressively greater role in the move towards a low carbon economy. By working towards the creation of a closed circular economy and a slow economy cities could be well placed to lead the transition.

Industry meets Green Economy: real potential for reconversion

Volume 6, 29/10/13

Authors:

Translations: PL  

Italy may be in the news for its economic and political uncertainty, but beneath the radar many manufacturing companies are making the necessary conversion to a sustainable and ecological future.

A sustainable welfare state

Volume 6, 29/10/13

Authors:

Translations: NL  

The welfare state is no longer affordable, we are told from all sides – neither in the Netherlands, nor in Europe as a whole. Cuts must be made in the social services, the argument runs, to rescue the economy. But it doesn’t have to be like that. Here is a green vision.

Europe of Knowledge: Paradoxes and Challenges

Volume 6, 29/10/13

Authors:

The Bologna process was a step towards creating a “Europe of Knowledge” where ideas and people could travel freely throughout Europe. Yet, this goal is threatened by changes to the structure of the higher education sector and perhaps by the nature of academia itself.
