About this book

This study explores one of the dimensions of the value-knowledge system needed in any movement towards humane governance for the planet: the ecological sustainability and integrity of the Earth's environment. The text begins from the premise that whilst environmental knowledge and values have developed rapidly, their development must not overwhelm consideration of other core "humane" values: peace, social justice and human rights. The book's contributors explore a variety of ethical issues that must inform future global regulation of the Earth's environment.
