What would a new approach to tackling urgent global issues like poverty, pollution, habitat loss and climate change look like? How can each of us make the most of the opportunities already present in our rapidly changing world?

With a focus on the roles of knowledge-building and knowledge traditions — the ways we think —, we get closer to what is intrinsic in the functioning of our world and of ourselves.

Topics covered include ecological business and marketing, ecological accounting; changing values in UK businesses; new business models for sustainability in Indian agriculture; sustainability in Latin America, Russia and Vietnam; mobilising the masses through dynamic citizenship in Sweden and Sarajevo; an investigation of the role of artistic collectives for sustainability in Brazil; developing Nairobi in accordance with a Triple Top Line Approach; an examination of two theoretical cultures in Europe and Africa; the emerging Chinese Eco-civilisation; and educating for sustainability in Singapore and Tasmania.
