Green Economics: Reform and Transformation. Written by a young Portugese economist, from NOVA School of Business and Economics, Portugal, Researching into Economics and International Management (CEMS-MIM). It pulls together ideas, issues, solutions and experiences from people all around the globe from all corners of the world to challenge the assumptions of mainsteam economics and finance. The book aims to introduce the reader to the vibrant kernel of change in economics to enable a better more benevolent, succecssful and efficient economy to arise from the ashes of the existing, chaotic and unequal one. Itvery easy to forget the interdependence between the economy and the environment. The ultimate truth is that there is no economy without the environment. The book explores the relationship between economics and the environment and Miriam Kennet and Michelle Gale de Oliveira are co editors of this exciting book - the Greening of the Global Economy: Reform and Transformation.The author contributors are spread widely from young innovators to world-renowned experts of various fields,coming together to discuss the problems that currently affect the world and how green economics, given its holistic and multidisciplinary approach, can address those challenges. Being an open-source forum of people from all around the world, all continents (except Antarctica) are represented, which contributes to the books diversify and enrich the debate. This discussion is a compilation of fresh and innovative ideas on the process of greening the global economy from the perspective of different disciplines and regions of the world. This book is a reflection of the Green Economics Institute's global network, which was put together by Judith Felton, Miriam Kennet and Michelle Gale de Oliveira to drive change and spread the discipline of green economics throughout the world. This network is rich in different perspectives of global affairs and regional issues, which has shed light on serious problems affecting the global economy.From the Eurozone crisis affecting my country, Portugal, and other European countries, to the rapid growth of the BRICS and the social uprisings in North Africa and the Middle-East, the economy is giving signs of weakness. As we argue in this book, green economics can reform and transform the economy system into one that promotes economic, social and environmental justice. This book is therefore a practical handbook of ideas, issues, solutions and experiences from people all around the globe. For economists, students, policy makers and community campaigners as well as governments and ministers, this volume explores case studies from around the world to inspire other communities and countries to overcome their economic and social problems through the greening of their economy. We hope you enjoy the book and take part in the movement of greening the global economy! Sofia Amaral September 2013

She is a Somalilander and is interested in the economic, political and ethical problems of her country. Sofia Amaral is a young Portugese economist from the NOVA School of Business and Economics, Portugal. She is Researching in Economics and International Management (CEMS-MIM). Her fields of interest include green economics and sustainable management as well as global affairs. She is passionate about the potential reform of economics for the benefit of Portugal especially as she sees Green Economics as a quick win and a logical and sensible way to solve its economics problems and its debt crisis. She has put together this volume, exploring case studies from around the world and is keen to see how the ideas in this book can help other communities and countries with their economics problems. She is particularly keen to start with Portugal to see how things can be fundamentally improved by a rethink in its economics strategy. This book is the start of that process. Harnessing The Green Economics Institute's global network (which has been put together by Judith Felton, Miriam Kennet , Michelle Gale de Oliveira and Volker Heinemann), she wants to drive change and to create hope by " Greening the Global Economy."
