On 29 May 2011 you can attend the launch of the first ‘Green Book’ at
the Zuiderpershuis in Antwerp. How can we change from a consumer society
with its increasing inequality to a society that respects ecological
boundaries and achieves social justice? This is the question that The
Green Book tries to answer, by means of inspiring books, documentaries,
debates and suchlike.
