WEED e.V. – World, Economy, Ecology and Development
WEED was founded in 1990 to bring the responsibility of the industrialized nations for the unjust world economy and global environmental destruction more into the focus of the work of social movements and NGOs in Germany.
Since then, WEED has contributed to raising awareness about the causes of global poverty and environmental problems and has developed effective reform and transformation proposals for a social and democratic shaping of globalization. Much has changed since 1990, and the challenges have grown: the global climate, economic and financial crises demand answers. The power of transnational corporations is stronger than ever. WEED analyzes the crises and problems, develops alternatives and works to implement them.
