TSC 7077 - Building Sustainability: The Global Crisis


Sustainability is defined as living in such a way that the capacity of future generations to meet their own needs is preserved. However, current patterns of human life are exhausting and destroying the gifts of nature that are necessary for life. To achieve sustainability, humans must refrain from depleting non-renewable resources and from polluting air, soil, and water. We must control both population and consumption and will likely need to end the extremes of wealth and poverty that are currently proving destructive to our habitats. Finally, sustainability will, we believe, require major changes in social institutions and in the way humans think and act toward each other and toward the earth. The pace at which we make these changes will determine how much of earth’s resources are left for generations yet to come. 3 credit(s)
