About this book

Sustainable development is now considered by many organizations and their stakeholders as being the model to follow. An increasing number of companies currently act and communicate based on their triple performance (i.e. economic, environmental and social). As educators and scientists we can follow this example by keeping in mind the bigger picture when it comes doing our research and educating our young people. This will help to improve the overall health of the society in which we live. It is a challenge that we should be well able to meet.

The main aim of this book is to assess some of the major environmental problems facing the developing as well as developed regions of the world. Solutions are suggested. It includes several papers on environmental education projects that helps to raise awareness in young people about the interrelationships between pollution, the environment and society.
