How do we build an economy that's green AND fair?

From the White House to City Hall, everyone's talking about making the transition to a new green economy. But how do we make sure this new economy doesn't perpetuate the disparities of the old one? Can we make the shift without making things even worse for those already struggling with economic and environmental injustice? How can we ensure that all communities benefit from this transition?

How do we build an economy that's green AND fair?

From the White House to City Hall, everyone's talking about making the transition to a new green economy. But how do we make sure this new economy doesn't perpetuate the disparities of the old one? Can we make the shift without making things even worse for those already struggling with economic and environmental injustice? How can we ensure that all communities benefit from this transition?

This week on Voices from the Edge, Dave talks with Vien Truong, Senior Policy Associate for Green For All, a national non-profit organization working to build "an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty." Truong works with state policymakers and community leaders in creating green job policies and programs throughout the country. Also joining the conversation will be Mike Leachman, a policy analyst at the Oregon Center for Public Policy and that organization's representative in the Oregon Apollo Alliance, a coalition of labor, business, environmental and community organizations working for a clean energy revolution that will create high-quality green-collar jobs. Join us in the discussion about how we make Oregon's new economy green and fair.

Greening Military Bases

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with two guests about a new project for turning US military bases into eco-development centers. This project will forge a diverse global coalition to press for the transformation of hundreds of US military bases overseas into eco-centers for launching the global green economy from the grassroots.

In the first half hour of the show the guest is Kevin Danaher, co-founder of Global Exchange. Since co-founding Global Exchange in 1988, Dr. Danaher has spoken at hundreds of universities and for community organizations throughout the U.S. He conducts workshops on issues ranging from the dynamics of the global economy to how we can replace the power of transnational corporations with local green economy networks.

In the second part of the show the guest is Miriam Pemberton, a Research Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, who writes and speaks on demilitarization issues for its Foreign Policy In Focus project. She leads a group that produces the annual “Unified Security Budget for the United States.
