Interpreting sustainable development: a question of values?
Department of Geography, University of Cambridge, England.
2005 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The presentation concludes by suggesting that we have few palatable options but to try to move forward on two fronts: by seeking greater knowledge and understanding of natural environments and the social world; and by engaging in dialogue about values – about what we believe to be good and right, addressing the question of how we wish to inhabit the planet. Vigorous debate, argument, challenge and counter-critique, even if at times they seem futile and inconclusive, should be seen in a positive light, as part of the vital process of interpreting the concept of sustainable development in terms of workable conceptions.
