This two minute "taster" video is part of the UNRISD project "Social Dimensions of Green Economy and Sustainable Development" - Check out the the full video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVCoKix5ygs
This video is based on a longer, 10 minute video "Green Economy Coalitions for Change " and is the fourth of six in the series "Bringing the Social to Rio+20".
In green economy and sustainable development debates, some groups have more power to determine goals, policies and outcomes than others. For sustainable development and poverty reduction to be attainable, broad-based participation is required to shift power relations and empower citizens to hold governments and businesses to account for their decisions and actions.
Footage is based on recordings and interviews from the UNRISD conference "Green Economy and Sustainable Development: Bringing back the Social Dimension" (2011).
