Nnimmo Bassey (Nigeria) will guide you through the seductive ‘green economy’ and explain how the way it is currently promoted by UN agencies such as UNEP is rather giving a cover to continue on a business as usual scenario. In this second episode he will deal with reparations of ecological debt, carbon trading and a declaration by African leaders in Botswana that supports the false green economy. “They might be surprised that one day they have the money from a green fund but find Africa without Africans.”
Nnimmo Bassey is a partner in EJOLT, the elected chair of Friends of the Earth International, a 2009 Time Hero of the environment and a 2010 Right Livelihood Award winner (aka the alternative Nobel Price)
