Overview

Reuniting Economy and Ecology in Sustainable Development is part of a series on the various aspects of sustainable development, where "commu nity" focuses on the primacy and quality of relationships among people sharing a particular place and between people and their environment. "Development" means personal and social transformation to a higher lev el of consciousness and a greater responsibility to be one anothers ke epers, and "sustainability" is the act whereby one generation saves op tions by passing them to the next generation, which saves options by p assing them onto the next and so on. The vision put forth in this boo k is one of melding ecology and economy into a unifying concept of soc ial-environmental sustainability. The author suggests that dividing ec ology and economy conceptually will destroy society as we know it. Our task as adults is to repair the environment for the children who must inherit it.
