Practising Sustainable Development

Sustainable development is defined by the United Nations as ‘development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’. Sustainable development is the concern for both the present and the future inhabitants of the planet as a whole. This course will explain what sustainable development is and how the ecological, economic and social aspects of sustainable development overlap. The course also explains how systems practise can help manage complexity in the area of sustainable development and you will examine case studies which look at aspects of sustainable development in China and Scotland. This course will be of great interest to professionals who work in the areas of international development, sustainability or environmental science, to students who are pursuing a career in the areas of international development and sustainability, and to anyone with an interest in the ecological, economic and social aspects of sustainable development.

  • Leonard Mathemabe Botswana Course Module: Module 2: Systems practise in sustainable development Course Topic: Tragedy of the commons Comment: The objective of the Programme is to raise awareness of decision-makers on critical social, economic and environmental issues and to better inform them of the practical means and policy options for improving the living environment. It does so by identifying, disseminating and applying lessons learned from Best Practices. 2013-06-07 09:06:11
  • Leonard Mathemabe Botswana Course Module: Module 2: Systems practise in sustainable development Course Topic: Introduction Comment: Sustainability applies to everybody. But everybody applies it differently, by defining and shaping it differently—much as water is edged and shaped by its container. It is conceived in absolute terms but underpinned by a great diversity of relatively “green”—and sometimes contradictory—practices that can each make society only more or less sustainable. In Practicing Sustainability, chefs, poets, music directors, evangelical pastors, skyscraper architects, artists, filmmakers, as well as scientific leaders, entrepreneurs, educators, business executives, policy makers, and the contrarians, shed light on our understanding of sustainability and the role that each of us can play 2013-06-06 15:06:18
