Abstract: The inaugural publication of the International Journal of Green Economics constructed formal foundations for the establishment of a new school of thought and an attempt to explore and capture current developments and thinking in Green Economics. The current issue introduces the next step in the development of green economics with a philosophical exploration of our focus, along with investigating potential building blocks from other disciplines. The current issue of The International Journal of Green Economics solicits experts in their respective fields and invites them to share inter-disciplinary contributions to the nascent philosophy, ontology and methodology of Green Economics. This editorial will also ponder some of the emerging and exciting questions in the field; introduce the contributors to this issue; and concludes by introducing the themes of future issues.

Keywords: green economics; environmental economics; ecological economics; economics methodology; green issues; ontology; reality; civilisation; social justice; environmental justice.
