About this book

"The Editors are to be congratulated for explaining the concept of sustainable development, together with a treatment of several of its scientific, technical, sociological, ethical and philosophical aspects. Enormous efforts have been made to explain difficult concepts simply and succinctly with the aid of illustrations and case studies."
– Lord Clinton-Davis, Former EU Commissioner for Transport, Environment and Nuclear Safety

"Long-term thinking is at the heart of sustainable development which the next generation will have to put into practice. To that end the need for good, up-to-date teaching materials on the subject cannot be over-stated. This book is intended to make an important contribution to that need. It explains the concept of sustainable development, how it was developed and how it could be implemented to secure an acceptable quality of life for future generations."
– Gro Harlem Brundtland, Chairman, World Commission on Environment and Development
