GreenDependent’s mission is to research and promote sustainable lifestyles, production and consumption methods and systems. Its Statutes include various aims, some of which are listed below:

  • To create, research, adapt, promote and spread working models of social, environmental, and economical sustainability to individuals, communities, civil society, business and governing organisations in order to create a more sustainable society.
  • To increase environmental awareness and reduce the impact of human activities (the so-called ‘ecological footprint’) on the environment and ecosystems.
  • To encourage and facilitate dialogue about social, environmental and economical sustainability with the involvement of individuals, communities, civil society, business and governing organisations.

Through its activities GreenDependent tries to establish links between research and everyday living so that important findings can be disseminated, discussed and put into practice as soon as possible. While GreenDependent partners in international projects, it also tries to be active on the local level: it initiates dialogue, motivates changes, and sets examples.

Ha mindenki ökofaluban élne, a Föld akkor is gondban lenne...

"Megszoktuk már, hogy azt halljuk, ha a világon mindenki az észak-amerikai vagy ausztrál életszínvonalon élne, négy vagy öt Föld bolygóra lenne szükségünk. Ezt az "ökológia lábnyom" számítás alapján tudjuk, amely megmutatja, hogy még a "zöld"-nek tartott nyugat-európai országoknak is, amelyek progresszíven kezelik a megújuló energiaforrások, az energiahatékonyság, és a közösségi közlekedés kérdéseit, több mint három bolygóra lenne szükségük anyagi életszínvonaluk fenntartásához..." Erről és sok hasznos témáról olvashat a Kislábnyom Hírlevél 75. számában.
