It cuts through the glut of information, providing a clear, concise overview of the most important issues and aspects of sustainability that everyone needs to know. And it's packed with successful models, inspiring examples and actionable solutions. This richly illustrated, beautifully designed, full-color manual addresses: • Environmental issues and their impacts, along with a prescription for rapid, large-scale change • Energy resources, peak oil, conservation, and emerging technologies • The global financial crisis, economic transition, green jobs, and sustainable business • Poverty, health, education, food security, and social justice • Local, sustainable communities and engaged citizens and • Green lifestyle choices Featuring a foreword written by renowned environmentalist and best-selling author Paul Hawken, the Sustainable World Sourcebook will appeal to anyone seeking an understanding of a broad range of sustainability issues. Focused on solutions and actions, it is the essential guidebook for every concerned citizen.
