Special Thanks

Special thanks to our Patrons, Ms Bianca Jagger, Dr Vandana Shiva, Sir Jonathon Porritt, Sir Geoffrey Palmer and Dr Parvez Hassan for their willingness to support the network.

Special thanks to Bristol Centre for Legal Research at Bristol Law School, UWE, for past financial sponsorship of this important project.

Special thanks to Liz Falconer, who gave us our first website in an act of extraordinary generosity.

Special thanks to Tim Blackman, our tireless technical manager, for his commitment to the importance of an idea that his crazy academic colleagues got passionate about over some scribbled notes and a cup of tea—and for making that early vision a reality— often on his own, unpaid time.

Special thanks too to Onita Das for her long hours of research for the Virtual Repository—again, a tremendous contribution to the value of the GNHRE to the wider community.

Special thanks to all our members, linked organisations and networks for their willingness to link efforts around the globe in the search for sustainable, health-giving, enriching, ecologically vibrant futures in which diversity is celebrated and injustice is confronted. Together, we can change thinking and change futures.

We welcome any support to supplement the hard work that the core team members do in order to keep the network as fully serviced as we can.  To support this project financially, or in any other way, please contact Erin Daly at edaly@widener.edu.
