“What must we do to achieve a sustainable society?  There is no single answer.  The first steps towards sustainability cover a whole spectrum of economic, social and environmental issues.
In this volume Australian leaders from a wide range of fields discuss the key issues we must address if we are to move towards a more just and sustainable future.  They identify the major concerns and challenges for achieving sustainability in the areas of: human health, water resources, land use and natural ecosystems, energy, equity and peace, economic systems, climate change, labour forces and work, urban design and transport, population.
Achieving sustainability will require major changes in our current approaches.  The thought-provoking chapters in this book provide a solid introduction to the issues in the search for a genuine path to sustainability.”
