Discussions about Green Economy often ignore the Social - this two minute "taster" video considers this issue. This video is based on a longer, 10 minute video "Green Economy and Sustainable Development: Bringing Back the Social" (youtu.be and is the first of six videos in the series "Bringing the Social to Rio+20". As the world prepares for Rio+20 - marking 20 years since the landmark 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, UNRISD asks the question "Where is the Social in Green Economy?". This video project is part of the UNRISD project "Social Dimensions of Green Economy and Sustainable Development". For more info, please see: www.unrisd.org Footage is based on recordings and interviews from the UNRISD conference "Green Economy and Sustainable Development: Bringing back the Social Dimension" (2011).
