Description
"This book presents a systems thinking approach to sustainability by answering questions on the meaning of sustainability in business, ecology, environmental quality, and economic development. Systems approaches to social injustice are developed. The sustainability of governance processes and achieving larger sustainability goals requires integrating the activities of NGOs, businesses, citizen groups, and standard setting and monitoring activities with more conventional actions of governments. The book includes a discussion of how practices in the sciences, education, religion, and the arts are changing in response to the need for improving sustainability. It ends with an exploration of the roles that individuals can play both as consumers and through partnering with others in social and political action"--,Provided by publisher.
