2020 Vision for a Sustainable Society
The Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute has produced a ground breaking new book, 2020 Vision for a Sustainable Society.
The book consists of 26 chapters written by experts. Amongst our contributors are distinguished professors, established non-fiction authors and even a Nobel Prize winner.
Each chapter identifies something that needs to change and selects one key action that is necessary in the next decade. These actions are mostly set within the context of Australia and the Asia-Pacific, although they do have global relevance. The final chapter compiles these priority actions into a ‘to do’ list: key actions to be taken before 2020 to create a sustainable society.
In suggesting twenty actions by 2020, the book provides a map to a more sustainable future – in a society that is healthier and happier but not radically different to what we enjoy today.
