The pursuit of sustainability has generated lifestyle changes for
individuals across the globe; innovations within the arts and
sciences, business, design, engineering, and agriculture; historic
policies and laws at municipal and state levels; and crucial
international protocols and agreements. Yet the meaning of
sustainability remains unsettled, and the term frequently serves as
green veneer for business as usual rather than a driver of
fundamental change. The second edition of this popular and lively
book explores the concept and practice of sustainability through a
broad range of current issues and debates. Fully revised and
updated, the book integrates expanded global breadth with increased
attention to the importance of local relationships and
responsibilities, while illustrating that sustainability demands
creativity as well as conservation. New Inquiry and Exploration
sections with links to web-based resources are also included to
help students probe and deepen central debates and topics.
Sustainability presents a hopeful account of crucial opportunities
while directly confronting the hurdles, disputes and challenges
that lie ahead. It will be a valuable resource for students and
general readers keen to grapple with one of the most pressing
issues of our times.
