GREENING THE KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY: ECOSOPHY, ECOLOGY AND ECONOMY

GREENING THE KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY: ECOSOPHY, ECOLOGY AND ECONOMY This paper argues that the most sustainable and ‘productive’ interface in advanced postindustrial societies in the twenty-first will be that between the knowledge and the ‘green economy.’ It charts three forms of the knowledge economy – the ‘creative’, ‘learning’ ‘open science’ economy – each of which profiles education as a central activity and ‘learning processes’ as the source of intellectual energy driving the new educational environment and shaping emergent knowledge ecologies. It discusses the significance of network analysis as a broad methodology that provides the basis in terms of policy for yoking large systems together – ecosophy, ecology and economics and social, ecological, and economic sustainability. Finally, the paper outlines the concept of ‘greening the knowledge economy’ as a basis for long-term sustainability.

Abstract

This paper argues that the most sustainable and ‘productive’ interface in advanced postindustrial societies in the twenty-first will be that between the knowledge and the ‘green economy.’ It charts three forms of the knowledge economy – the ‘creative’, ‘learning’ ‘open science’ economy – each of which profiles education as a central activity and ‘learning processes’ as the source of intellectual energy driving the new educational environment and shaping emergent knowledge ecologies. It discusses the significance of network analysis as a broad methodology that provides the basis in terms of policy for yoking large systems together – ecosophy, ecology and economics and social, ecological, and economic sustainability. Finally, the paper outlines the concept of ‘greening the knowledge economy’ as a basis for long-term sustainability.
