After practising as a barrister for thirty years, John Jopling has helped to establish numerous organisations seeking to contribute to a more just and healthy world. These include FIELD (Foundation for International Environmental Law and Development), Feasta (the Dublin-based foundation for the economics of sustainability) and the Sustainable London Trust. SLT is the lead organisation in the World Wide Democracy Network, founded by John Jopling and Roy Madron.
One of FEASTAs main roles is to build up a body of creative thinking about, understanding of, and support for the economic systems that must replace neo-liberalism. Contributors include Herman Daly, David Korten, James Robertson, Lothar Mayer and Aubrey Meyer.
