About this book

Sir Martin Holdgate
This book, by the former Executive Director General of the IUCN and the principal author of both the World Conservation Strategy and Caring for the Earth argues that after more than two decades of conceptualizing and deliberating, the time has finally come for concerted action in the move towards sustainable development. Bringing his unrivalled experience to the task of reviewing progress to date and examining what needs to be done, he argues that radical change must be accomplished at every level - from our understanding of our place in nature and the values we put on it, up to a reformed economic structure and new social institutions. A powerfully written and thought provoking book. When individuals have the relevant information and the power to act on it within their own communities our prospects for the future, argues Holdgate, may be transformed.
