Green Economy Coalition, Newsletter August 2011
It is now the first week of August and we are working hard to achieve a shared narrative and policy positions to influence government submissions for the 1st November Zero Draft for Rio 2012.

In the first instance, we have drafted a response to the EU?s Communication on the green economy, and once this is approved by our policy team, we shall be discussing this with member states directly.

The Rio Policy working group, representing all shades of our coalition, is in place to develop our policy positions. We would like to open up their drafts for wider coalition comment in August. We will use the UN DPI Conference in Bonn (3-5 September) to open up the debate to wider civil society. Through these conversations we are looking forward to crystallising and improving our thinking.

It is important that we recognise and work with the constant evolution of debate on green economy, and think beyond Rio 2012. To do this, our Big Picture project is moving ahead, developing our framework to the next level of detail and clarifying the many change options that are both available and necessary (not just the few we might get agreement for at Rio 2012). We will be using our re-launched website and its? supporting Green Economy Lab to clarify our current thinking and make it easier for you to contribute directly so that we can continue to be part of this evolution.
