OnePlanet: 40 Years On Sept. 30, 2011

from One Planet· · 1 listeners

Forty years ago this month, Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace were founded - born from the nuclear opposition movement, they would eventually become two of the world's best known environmental organisations. Along with WWF, which is celebrating it's 50th birthday in 2011, FoE and Greenpeace have led the global green movement. But how has the optimism, the talk, and all those donations changed our relationship with Planet Earth? This week on One Planet, the heads of all three organisations join us to debate past successes, failures and the future of green politics.
