What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Tamara Stenn’s writing abounds with energy. Her work redefines basic concepts of sustainability and social entrepreneurship that for too long have been under the sway of narrowly conceived economic mandates such as the necessity of growth. Drawing upon customary understandings of Suma Qamana or ‘living well’, she presents a vibrant alternative to Western ideas of living competitively. Most importantly, Stenn’s writing points to another future that is both necessary and becoming possible.” (Professor Paul James, Western Sydney University)

“Integrating the thousands-of-years-old wisdom tradition of Suma Qamana into a modern eco-centered sustainability framework, Dr. Stenn provides great case studies that show business in action, building a better world.” (Shel Horowitz, social entrepreneurship consultant, author of Guerrilla Marketing to Heal the World)

“Social Entrepreneurship as Sustainable Development: Introducing the Sustainability Lens” is a timely and powerful approach to looking at Social Entrepreneurship. Tamara provides a set of important concepts in practical ways that allows those aspiring to be social entrepreneurs as well those already practicing socially conscious business to apply to developing a more sustainable future.” (Dr. Ken Williams, Interim Dean, Sit Graduate Institute, USA)
