Abstract:

"The Green Festival Reader: Fresh Ideas from Agents of Change presents the addresses of the foremost thinkers and activists at these popular events. From a green New Deal to healthy homes and community empowerment, The Green Festival Reader covers the most urgent and inspiring topics in today's environmental movement." "A pervasive theme in these talks is the emergent green economy. In addition to exposing the environmental degradation and social injustice that accompany traditional business models, the speakers envision a sustainable economy that uses resources wisely and lifts people out of poverty. They invite readers to become "ecopreneurs," to create green worker cooperatives, to green their homes, and to shop and invest with the planet's health in mind. Going green is not an elitist activity, they maintain. Rather, it's the only way we can keep doing business - just not business as usual."--BOOK JACKET.
