Business Positive Actions
23 Feb 2009
In line with Our Future Planet's wish to approach the future dynamically and positively, I believe that all people, as employees, employers, consumers and leaders, hold the power.
We can choose and create better business by thinking about who we work for and with, who we buy from and what we buy. By changing our own behaviour, we can change how businesses behave too.
As well as exerting your power as a consumer, you can take action and get involved with (or start your own!) local trading or complementary currency scheme - where the focus is on keeping wealth in the local economy, and having a meaningful exchange for goods.
Think creatively about the economy and upload your ideas and projects to YouTopia and get other people involved.
Our Future Planet is at an important and exciting crossroads in global and local industry, and which way we turn will affect the planet's future immeasurably.
