Green Deal, Green Growth [English]
www.greendeals.nl The Dutch government wants to create a more country. That’s why the Netherlands has opted for green growth. To preserve wealth for future generations, we have to seize new busines opportunities, and also take into account the growing need for sustainability. To bring about a genuine transition to green growth, all relevant parties, such as businesses, knowledge institutions, civil society organisations and government must work together. The government’s Green Deal policy aims to play a facilitating and stimulating role by giving parties sufficient room to deploy their sustainable initiatives, in areas, such as mobility, climate, water, biodiversity, food, resources, construction, the bio-based economy and energy.

Boosting investment in the green economy
The Paris Agreement on climate change and the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals at the United Nations were key milestones on the road towards an energy-efficient, low-carbon economy in Europe. According to the International Energy Agency, the full implementation of the Paris Agreement will require $13.5 trillion of investment in energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies. This is why capital markets will play an essential role in mobilising the much-needed investments for the transition to a green economy. At EU level, a High Level Expert Group on sustainable finance was launched in October 2016, as part of the Capital Markets Union (CMU) initiative launched by the European Commission. EURACTIV organised a workshop to discuss the role of sustainable finance in meeting the EU’s climate and environment objectives. Questions included: - What legislative measures can help boost sustainable investment opportunities? - What is the role of insurers in the transformation towards more sustainable investment? - How can consumers be encouraged to invest their savings and pensions in sustainable solutions?

Germany: The world's first major renewable energy economy
The planet Earth will be completely devastated by 2050 if natural resources will be exploited at the current rate. «According to the scientists, in 50 years people will have to move to another planet, because life on Earth will be impossible». This statement is from 2006. And in 2018 this prediction has been confirmed by the fact that the annual volume of renewable resources of the planet ended on August 1, 2018. Can we stop this huge conveyor? - It is difficult but possible. The key word in this mission is renewable resources. This documentary shows renewable energy sector in Germany. The country is well known as "The world's first major renewable energy economy", and in this film I learned something new about green energy. Please like, and comment below what do you think about the future of renewable energy. Would it save the Earth?

Це твердження 2006-го року. А у 2018 році це передбачення підтверджується фактом, що щорічний обсяг поновлюваних ресурсів планети, закінчився ще 1 серпня 2018 року. Чи можемо ми зупинити цей величезний конвеєр? - Це важко, але можливо. Ключовим словом у цій місії - є поновлювані ресурси!

Driving the green economy: UN launches effort to bring electricity to world's poorest
United Nations, New York, 2 June 2011 -- The estimated 2.5 billion people across the world who do not have access to reliable electricity supplies can benefit from clean and renewable energy generated through partnerships between governments and the private sector, the United Nations said today. A report by UN-Energy, an umbrella body of UN agencies working on sustainable development and their business partners, in conjunction with leading electricity companies and other partners launched outlines the conditions necessary for successful public-private partnerships (PPP) on electricity.

How green energy will change our future - Docu
How will green energy change our future? What will our future look like with green energy? The growth of green energy goes together with change. Our future will not only include green energy, but our future will also be shaped by it. What will the future sustainable world look like? That is the big question, now that the global transition towards sustainable energy is gaining momentum. For the growth of sustainable energy involves a lot more changes than just the color of the power supplied to our homes. How will we build, how will our mobility be impacted, and will energy, one day, be free? Just like the Internet turned out to have an unforeseen influence on all kinds of industries, from music to taxi businesses, the transition towards sustainable energy will also rise beyond the energy sector. And with a much wider impact than is now assumed. But we know surprisingly little about what that world will look like, and how the people in it will live, work and move around. Expectations are that, by the 2050s, two-thirds of the electricity generated globally will be sustainable. The Netherlands is ambitious too. But what kind of world are we heading for, really, with all these sustainable measures? In partial areas, the future is clear: a massive stop to the use of gas, lots of windmills and solar panels, and perhaps a self-driving car outside. But, for now, there is no wider vision of what the sustainable new world will look like. What will the world be like once energy has become practically free? What will the impact of the transition towards sustainable energy be on the balance of power in the world? A journey along places where the sustainable future is already (nearly) visible. In China, for example, old collapsed coal mines are given a new destination as solar parks. In Denmark, the power plants of the future also serve as skiing slopes. And in Malmö, Sweden, new leases are signed with green fingers.

Winona LaDuke - Building a Green Economy
Rural communities have often been affected adversely in historic economic systems based on centralized power and food production. The loss of environmental and human wealth has been costly, particularly in Native American communities, but other rural communities are similarly affected. This historic pattern has buttressed an unsustainable way of life. The future must be sustainable in terms of environment, economics and social relations. Relocalizing food and energy systems as core elements of a rural economy indeed national and international economies has the potential to transform world social, economic and political relations. Our work at a local, national and international level describes how communities make change and the implications for larger society.

The Green Economy and China's Economic Development
What does the "good life" entail? Clearly, at one level, it is about growth, rising incomes for the population as a whole, and correspondingly higher living standards. But "living standards" are not simply a question of dollars and cents. In China, the country's quantum leap in growth has long been associated with a corresponding degradation of the environment. But there are growth opportunities inherent in this environmental crisis as well. Eliminating the collateral damage associated with environmental degradation can contribute to growth and vastly enhance the life quality of China's citizens. Building a new kind of "green economy" is one of the most effective ways that China can augment the quality of life of everyone, as well as showing how the state's resources can yet again be mobilized for broader public purposes (as opposed to corruption and narrow crony capitalism). Check out the video to see what panelists Haifeng Huang, Michael Lepech, Tom Miller, and Ying Kong have to say at our recent conference in Shenzhen, China, about these important challenges.

European forestry innovation: towards a green economy
On the occasion of European Forest Week and Metsä2013 Joint session of the ECE Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry and the FAO European Forestry Commission, this video highlights the importance of sustainable forestry for the future of the UNECE region and greening the economy. The UNECE/FAO Forestry & Timber Section has served as a trusted source of information, data and analysis about the forest sector in the UNECE region for more than 60 years. It also provides a forum for policy discussion about major issues that affect the forest sector. The section is unique in that it is a joint UNECE/FAO secretariat, servicing the UNECE Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry and the FAO European Forestry Commission and working closely with other members of the United Nations family and with country stakeholders. It operates to a mandate agreed by the 56 countries, which together comprise the UNECE region, stretching from North America to the Russian Federation and Central Asia. Its priorities and activities are presented in its Strategic Plan. Working with FAO, the Section plays a pivotal role in the regular assessment of the state of forests in the pan-European region and contributes to the periodic global Forest Resources Assessment . In addition, the section's work with Forest Europe allows a regular critical assessment of the health and sustainability of Europe's forests, using criteria and indicators drawn up by the countries active in the Forest Europe process. The results are published in the State of Europe's Forests report. The Section is also active in the field of forest policies and institutions, recognized as an integral part of sustainable forest management. These activities include information collection, analysis and dissemination, monitoring of developments, analysis of trends and capacity building. The Section addresses important cross-sectoral aspects of relevance to the forest sector, notably related to climate change mitigation and adaptation, bioenergy, biodiversity, land use, water and agriculture. For instance, the Section works to improve the knowledge and understanding of wood energy sources and uses, in particular by collecting data on wood energy in member countries through the Joint Wood Energy Enquiry, and promotes the sustainable use of wood for energy. The Section's work compiling market and, to a lesser extent, price data for forest products throughout the region, feeds into the prestigious Forest Products Annual Market Review, which appears every autumn and forms the basis for market discussions during the annual session of the Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry. As well as providing an overview of the changing state of markets, the review sets out to understand the forces that are shaping the timber market and to examine future directions. Underlying all of this is a comprehensive database that provides a unique historical perspective. A core part of the UNECE/FAO forest and timber programme from the early 1950s has also been the publication of long-term forest sector outlook studies. The latest European Forest Sector Outlook Study (EFSOS II) comprises scenarios addressing main policy issues on climate change mitigation, wood energy promotion, biodiversity preservation and industrial innovation for the period 2010-2030. EFSOS II is being used in many circles as a basis for policy formulation and analysis. This brief introduction can give you only a flavour of the work that the UNECE/FAO Forestry & Timber undertakes.

Already 25% of its power comes from wind farms. Now other countries hope to imitate its success. Wind farms are traditionally regarded as a risky investment. It takes 10 years for each turbine to recoup costs. Farms have to be hugely productive to be financially viable. But Denmark has proved wind farms can work. As Hjuler Jensen, Head of Wind Energy states: “It’s feasible that 50% of our electricity could come from wind in future”.

Can 100% renewable energy power the world? - Federico Rosei and Renzo Rosei
Check out our Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/teded View full lesson: https://ed.ted.com/lessons/can-100-renewable-energy-power-the-world-federico-rosei-and-renzo-rosei Every year, the world uses 35 billion barrels of oil. This massive scale of fossil fuel dependence pollutes the earth, and it won’t last forever. On the other hand, we have abundant sun, water and wind, which are all renewable energy sources. So why don’t we exchange our fossil fuel dependence for an existence based only on renewables? Federico Rosei and Renzo Rosei describe the challenges.

Electricity in the EU - Sparking a Green Economy
The way Europeans consume and produce electricity can affect the environment. Here statistics have important findings to share ranging from data on what are the negative environmental effects of our daily behaviour to what are the most significant trends on electricity generated from renewable sources. We are now calling on you to give us your ideas on how we meet those goals with concrete steps. The Rio+20 Public Consultation runs until January, and you can find it here: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/consultations/rio20_en.htm This is one of a four serie of videos that tell four stories, in which a fictional character - the journalist Marta Wisdom - investigates and informs on the topics of green growth, green economy and poverty in the EU. In her investigations, reportage and interview she is supported by the findings of the EU statistics.

Sustainable Progress to Build the "Green Economy" and Solve Climate Disruption + "green' tips" for the Christmas Holiday Season Meetings # 3,405 - Ending the year with a bang (not a whimper), naturalist and energy-environmental researcher Dennis Nelson argues that a RE-DEFINITION OF "PROGRESS" is essential to maintain and promote climate protection, ecological and public health, economic well-being, and energy security. Topics will include: A discussion of reforms under the fascinating field of environmental economics (a steady-state economic system), refutation of climate disruption science denial and policy delay, the problems of Canadian tar sands exploitation and the alternatives to oil, preservation of the National Park System (this year is the Centennial Celebration of the National Park Service), his testimony before the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP), his letter to Illinois politicians in opposition to the Exelon Nuclear Bailout in Springfield, and "green tips" for the Christmas Holiday Season.
