In order to achieve a green economy, green society, and a world fit for children, a radical transformation in our policies, technologies, patterns of production and consumption, and our foci of innovation is required. A wide range of sustainable development strategies have emerged, led by UN agencies, international and national organizations as well as civil society. These practices have demonstrated their potential to engage and empower even the most vulnerable and marginalized communities equipping them with values, skills and knowledge to thrive and contribute towards a green society. Yet, while there is evident success of these transformative practices, they often retain a status of “good examples” and are seldom up-scaled and mainstreamed to become a core strategy for a green economy.
