About this book

An exploration of the human-related aspects of sustainable development, this book emphasizes the need to move away from an unwanted circumstance by being systemic in our thinking instead of symptomatic. In other words, we must stop treating symptoms without dealing with the cause. The authors argue that we cannot move away from an unwanted, negative circumstance; we can only move toward a desired, positive outcome.

Revealing the multidimensional nature of sustainable development, the text summarizes positive approaches and presents strong theoretical and historical pieces along with salient case examples that illustrate the desired outcome of each model or framework discussed.
