The Sustainability Revolution: Portrait Of A Paradigm Shift
New Society Publishers, 01/giu/2005 - 207 pagine
Sustainability has become a buzzword in the last decade, but its full meaning is complex, emerging from a range of different sectors. In practice, it has become the springboard for millions of individuals throughout the world who are forging the fastest and most profound social transformation of our time—the sustainability revolution.
The Sustainability Revolutionpaints a picture of this largely unrecognized phenomenon from the point of view of five major sectors of society:
Community (government and international institutions)
The book analyzes sustainability as defined by each of these sectors in terms of the principles, declarations and intentions that have emerged from conferences and publications, and which serve as guidelines for policy decisions and future activities. Common themes are then explored, including:
An emphasis on stewardship
Concluding that these themes in turn represent a new set of values that define this paradigm shift,The Sustainability Revolutiondescribes innovative sustainable projects and policies in Colombia, Brazil, India and the Netherlands and examines future trends. Complete with a useful resources list, this is the first book of its kind and will appeal to business and government policymakers, academics and all interested in sustainability.

Review: The Sustainability Revolution: Portrait of a Paradigm ShiftRecensione dell'utente - eliza - Goodreads
Mostly about green business and green architecture. Aside from a nice intro/overview of the sustainability movement, it's all esesntially reviews of green initiative mission statements. In short: heavy on specifics but light on depth. Leggi recensione completa
