The Environment and Development Research Group of the Institute of Development Policy and Management hosts a visit from Daniel Mittler, Political Director / Head of Political and Business Unit at Greenpeace International.
Even more than 20 years after the Rio Summit on environment and development the quests for a clean environment and economic development are still often seen as opposites. At the same time, as climate change impacts become reality rather than future prediction, environmental degradation more - and more obviously - than ever before is undermining development goals.
How does a global campaigning organization like Greenpeace deal with these challenges? How does Greenpeace link development and environment in its own planning? Are campaigning approaches different in North and South?
Daniel Mittler is the Political Director of Greenpeace International. He will be sharing his insights from over two decades of being an activist and be available for any questions. Daniel studied African studies and has a lifelong interest in how development and the environment interlink. You can learn more about Daniel via his blog or his LinkedIn profile (links below).
