Raising Environmental Awareness Lessons | The Ecology of Commerce

August 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Ecology of Commerce

Join Ron Boyd as he continues to lead us in the ongoing monthly environmental series (REAL). This month we will be discussing the book The Ecology of Commerce by Paul Hawken.

Hawken’s view is that the impending ecological catastrophe cannot be prevented by individuals – only business is powerful and influential enough to reverse the present trend. He gives a practical 12-point action plan which can save the world, if only there is the will to do it.

Hawken believes that a totally new relationship between governments and businesses is needed (their present collusion against the public is undemocratic); taxation must be entirely re planned (it encourages waste and rewards short-term-ism); prices must be brought to reflect true environmental costs (the free market is good for fixing prices, but fails to recognize costs). All this can only be done by governments and the heads of large businesses.
