Book Description

April 30 2002

Human activity overuses the resources of the planet at a rate that will severely compromise the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Changes toward sustainability need to begin within the next few years or environmental deterioration will become irreversible. Thus the need to develop a mindset of sustainable development - the ability of society to meet its needs without permanently compromising the earth's resources - is pressing.

The Psychology of Sustainable Development clarifies the meaning of the term and describes the conditions necessary for it to occur. With contributions from an international team of policy shapers and makers, the book will be an important reference for environmental, developmental, social, and organizational psychologists, in addition to other social scientists concerned with the impact current human activity will have on the prospects of future generations.

"[...]this book maps the four primary domains that need be considered to achieve sustainable development: economic, environmental, institutional/political, and social. Although the book presents a psychology viewpoint, it will benefit any interested reader in environmental studies."
(Electronic Green Journal, 18, 2003)

"A psychology book dedicated to sustainable development is comprehensible for the reason that ecological problems were created,and still are, by patterns of behaviour. Thus there is a principal question that this book aims to answer:"How can psychology help in the development of a sustainable society?" The authors demonstrate that psychology has an important role in the sense of promoting sustainable values, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviours. The contributors show us that sustainable development involves the simultaneous pursuit of economic prosperity, environmental quality, political participation, and social equity.
........This book maps the four primary domains that need be considered to achieve sustainable development: economic, environmental, institutional/political, and social. Although the book presents a psychology viewpoint, it will benefit any interested reader in environmental studies."
