Sustainability : Literacy Edition

Author(s): Ruth Naumann

Social Studies

This visually stunning book examines the concept of sustainability that we as individuals and a nation need to take responsibility for looking after the planet, and that our actions today will affect future generations. The importance of sustainability is examined in relation to a healthy environment, thriving economy and liveable society, and why these are important for the future. It is reinforced that no person, group or generation wants to be charged with ecocide, and the way to avoid ecocide is to practise sustainability and sustainable development. By doing this the environment, economy and society all flourish together and not at the expense of one another.
