Books Info:

The Greening of the Mediteranean Economy free pdf The Greening of the Mediteranean is a unique book which will explore current developments for change towards green ideas, government, policy, campaigning and intellectual trends from writers all around the Mediteranean sea, and also discusses historical environmental and social influences which may have led to historic and prehistoric changes, such floods,volcanoes, tsunamis and natural events and social events such as empire, and the decline or sudden collapse for example of Atlantis and the Minoan civilisations, how we can contribute to the development and success in a green way of the Mediteranean area and Europe both now and in the future."To combat much of the current misery experienced by many people around the Mediterranean today as a result of the crisis, as the Mediterranean peoples have suffered more than most, we celebrate the potential of the area, and critique the current, prevailing approaches to Economic and Environmental issues, which are focused on managerialist perspectives of the so called "green growth" or "green capitalism," rather our own original and novel perspective which emphasizes conventional growth as the problem. We promote progressive thinking towards ecology and social justice. Pollution and resources depletion are explained as part of a much bigger emerging picture than simply mitigation or adaptation principles. We can no longer afford to simply maintain the outdated, unchanged, mainstream socio and economic models. So, we introduce alternatives for economic and societal organisation which support a more sustainable and balanced relationship with nature and we stress combating poverty as core to this achievement." - Miriam Kennet and Dr Enrico Tezza (Italy) 2014
