The Age of Sustainable Development

This book on sustainable development explains the main concepts of our age. This includes both, an i.e. method for solving the issues that are related to sustainable development and the way of understanding the nature and world.
Sustainable development tries to create a sense of interaction with three complex systems: the physical environment of earth, the global economy and the society around the globe. It recommends the overall framework, in which the purpose of the society is to be governed by good governance for socially inclusive development and environmentally sustainable. This is a way of understanding the world, yet it is an idealistic or moral approach to the world: a way of defining the objectives of a well-functioning society, which protects well for today's citizens and in future generations. This book describes some of the important challenges and ways of solving all aspects of the world so that new and creative ways can be involved to ensure problem-solving, brainstorming and inclusive and sustainable development.
