Green Charities

What should be the relationships between governments, charities, and corporations? In this episode, the conclusion to our series discussing the merits and drawbacks of different environmental organizations, we attempt to define this intricate balance through the lenses of various potential charity sectors.

We attempt to define what a ‘charity’ is through its motivations, actions, and relationship to the general public (receiving donations, rather than votes or purchases). We use organizations such as Greenpeace, WWF, and Oxfam as case studies.
