New Green Deal

The New Green Deal for 2009 has been composed in a final form, click to access it. 


Planet Drum coordinated gatherings to define a program for a New Green Deal. With 2008ís fall elections, a new federal administration will be taking over. What sort of ecological policies should be undertaken? With so many green problems exploding after eight years of neglect, how should the next Federal administrationís priorities be set?

Planet Drum envisioned a consensus recommendation. The first organizational meeting was held at the home of the President of Planet Drum Board of Directors on January 3, 2008. Attendees included:

  • S.F. Nature in the Cityís Peter Brastow,  

  • Bay Area Relocalizeís David Room, 

  • Green Collar Jobsí Aaron Lehmer, 

  • International Forum on Globalizationís Randy Hayes, and 

  • Planet Drumís Marc Kasky, Peter Berg, Judy Goldhaft, Gail Koffman, and Mark Hebard.  

A second discussion /dinner meeting was held in the middle of January and progress in writing a document continued through email. Stay tuned for more results!
