Footprints: Past, Present and Future - International Workshop
TEXT SIZE  Increase   Decrease

This public discussion and workshop address the general theme of education and the science of sustainability. Its title encompasses ecological footprints and the footprints of social progress/development. In linking these concepts we are asking: can we continue to improve the quality of life and provide a better standard of living for people while preserving the health of the environment? This is the challenge of sustainable development. In order to meet it, we must learn new and better ways of balancing human needs with environmental ones. This is the goal of education for sustainable development.
