What must we do to achieve a sustainable society? Unfortunately there is no one answer. The first steps towards sustainability cover a whole spectrum of economic, social and environmental issues. In this volume Australian leaders from a wide range of fields discuss the key issues we must address if we are to move towards a more just and sustainable society. They identify the major concerns and challenges for achieving sustainability, including: Human health; Water resources; Land use and natural ecosystems; Energy, equity and peace; Economic systems; Climate change; Labour forces and work; Transportation and urban design; Population; Achieving sustainability will require major changes in our current approaches. The thought-provoking chapters in this book provide a solid introduction to the issues in the search for a genuine path to sustainability.
