Institute of Ecolonomics- www.ecolonomics.org
The Institute of Ecolonomics is a nonprofit organization working to create a sustainable environment in a sustainable economy believing firmly that both are essential to human welfare and that if the effort to achieve either fails, the human race will suffer greatly. The Institute was formed in 1993 by actor and community activist Dennis Weaver out of his deep conviction that the times call for new thinking and new approaches in bringing to the public forum the vital interest of both the ecology and the economics of America and the planet. Mr. Weaver coined the word Ecolonomics as a visual and verbal representation of an idea: that our ecology and economy are interdependent, two sides of the same coin; and that proponents of each can forge partnerships which foster the interest of both – thus, ecology and economics. The Institute of Ecolonomics is bridging the two to create a new discipline. The Institute envisions ending the division between environmentalists and industrialists by promoting those principles of ecological sustainability which enhance corporate profitability and a strong economy while honoring and preserving the environment.
