Environmental Justice

On Thursday, September 18, the U.S. Mission to the U.N. held a Green Business discussion panel at U.N. Headquarters.  The panel was diverse to the extent that the Corporate representatives were also met by a consultant and NGO representative.  The subjects focussed on the corporate level views of the issues, including Cap and Trade Markets.  Some audience input also contributed to deepening the conversation.  My topic was certification, and was met by a negative and skeptical view of "legitimacy," although later comments acknowledged important examples.  I am beginning to evaluate the communication process and the information structure which I as an advocate of solidarity economics and the World Social Forum can develop.
