Sustainability Principles and Practice
Sustainable development as an academic field is still in a formative stage. Since the explicit call of Agenda 21 to scientists, researchers and professors on the need for research, service and training on the issue, a lot has changed. The emerging result showed a heterogeneous and complex field of environmental, social, economic and governance aspects, in need of clarifying the interconnections and synthesis. This allowed the field to move into new areas of understanding and transdisciplinarity. This book is an outstanding contribution to this process of moving from multi-, and inter-, to transdisciplinary transitions which characterize the genesis of each new discipline in science.

Fler böcker av Margaret Robertson
Могу я для вас что-нибудь сделать. Клушар задумался, польщенный оказанным вниманием. - Если честно… - Он вытянул шею и подвигал головой влево и вправо. - Мне не помешала бы еще одна подушка, если вас это не затруднит. - Нисколько. - Беккер взял подушку с соседней койки и помог Клушару устроиться поудобнее. Старик умиротворенно вздохнул.
Его нижняя губа на мгновение оттопырилась, но заговорил он не. Слова, сорвавшиеся с его языка, были определенно произнесены на английском, но настолько искажены сильным немецким акцентом, что их смысл не сразу дошел до Беккера. - Проваливай и умри.
