Earth Policy Institute
Earth Policy Institute, an independent environmental research organization
founded in May 2001 by Lester R. Brown (founder and former president of Worldwatch
Institute), is dedicated to disseminating information on an environmentally
sustainable economy-an eco-economy.
Current environmental research deals with various pieces of what it takes
to build a sustainable future, but it does not provide a model or an overall
plan. Unless we have a shared vision of where we want to go, we are not likely
to get there. Earth Policy Institute is disseminating its vision of an eco-economy
via its book Eco-Economy: Building an Economy for the Earth and through brief
Eco-Economy Updates, four-pagers that are designed for use by the media, can
be read by busy policymakers, and can be easily distributed on the Internet.
All information published by Earth Policy Institute is available online for
free downloading. Individuals may also sign up to receive the Eco-Economy
Updates by email.
