The Future We Want: The Earth We Need

by Aditya Goel

Water and sanitation problems have reached boiling point; children are dying unnecessarily at the rate of 20 jumbo jets crashing every day. We forget that the water cycle and life cycle are one. Only a fool tests the depth of water with both feet. What makes the desert beautiful is that it somewhere hides a well. As I travel around the world, people think the only place where there is potential conflict over water is the Middle East, but they are completely wrong. We have the problem all over the world. The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea. In one drop of water are found all the secrets of the oceans. Thus, it is necessary to conserve and use this resource efficiently.

Why We Should Go Vegan

by Magnus Vinding

We should go vegan!That is the unambiguous conclusion of this short book. This conclusion is reached through a broad examination of the consequences of our not being vegan - both in relation to human health, environmental pollution, the risk of the spread of diseases, and in relation to the animals we farm and kill. On all these levels the conclusion is clear: We have no good reason to not go vegan, while we have many good reasons to stop our practice of raising, killing and eating animals and things from them. The bottom line: We have a strong ethical obligation to go vegan, and that is true even if we only care about ourselves and our fellow human beings."Magnus Vinding makes a compelling case for ending the abuse of other sentient beings. What will we tell our grandchildren? ("But I lik...

The Simple Case for Going Vegan

by Magnus Vinding

This essay aims to show that we are morally obliged to go vegan by our own core values.

Rewilding European Landscapes

by Henrique M. Pereira and Laetitia M. Navarro

Some European lands have been progressively alleviated of human pressures, particularly traditional agriculture in remote areas. This book proposes that this land abandonment can be seen as an opportunity to restore natural ecosystems via rewilding. We define rewilding as the passive management of ecological successions having in mind the long-term goal of restoring natural ecosystem processes. The book aims at introducing the concept of rewilding to scientists, students and practitioners. The first part presents the theory of rewilding in the European context. The second part of the book directly addresses the link between rewilding, biodiversity, and habitats. The third and last part is dedicated to practical aspects of the implementation of rewilding as a land management option. We beli...

Sustainable Living with Environmental Risks

by Nobuhiro Kaneko and Shinji Yoshiura

We are not free from environmental risks that accompany the development of human societies. Modern economic development has accelerated environmental pollution, caused loss of natural habitats, and modified landscapes. These environmental changes have impacted natural systems: water and heat circulation, nutrient cycling, and biodiversity. These changes in natural systems degrade ecosystem services and subsequently increase environmental risks for humans. Environmental risks, therefore, are not only human health risks by pollution, climatic anomalies and natural disasters, but also degradation of ecosystem services on which most people are relying for their lives. We cannot entirely eliminate the risks, because it is not possible to attain zero impact on the environment, but we need to fin...

Wetlands and Water Framework Directive: Protection, Management and Climate Change (GeoPlanet: Earth and Planetary Sciences)

by Stefan Ignar and Mateusz Grygoruk

This book compares the lessons learned from a wetland-perspective approach to the changing climate and the requirements of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) with regard to environmental conservation. Examples from Germany and Poland are discussed due to the efficiency of their respective implementations of water conservation policies. Although the general scientific interest in specific issues such as wetlands, climate change, nature conservation and the WFD enjoy a well established position in international environmental research, these four elements are rarely considered together due to the complexity of the processes, biased scenarios of global change and subjective policy background. Major challenges involved in carrying out environmental conservation actions that assess the potentia...

Marginality: Addressing the Nexus of Poverty, Exclusion and Ecology

by Joachim von Braun and Franz W. Gatzweiler

This book takes a new approach on understanding causes of extreme poverty and promising actions to address it. Its focus is on marginality being a root cause of poverty and deprivation. “Marginality” is the position of people on the edge, preventing their access to resources, freedom of choices, and the development of capabilities. The book is research based with original empirical analyses at local, national, and local scales; book contributors are leaders in their fields and have backgrounds in different disciplines. An important message of the book is that economic and ecological approaches and institutional innovations need to be integrated to overcome marginality. The book will be a valuable source for development scholars and students, actors that design public policies, and for ...

From Seascapes of Extinction to Seascapes of Confidence: Territorial Use Rights in Fisheries in Chile: ElQuisco and Puerto Oscuro

From Seascapes of extinction to seascapes of confidence. Territorial Use Rights in Fisheries in Chile: El Quisco and Puerto Oscuro by Gloria Gallardo Fernandés is an important contribution to our understanding of the multifaceted challenges underlying sustainable solutions to ecological fisheries, the book describes how, in Chile, indiscriminate harvest of the edible shellfish Concholepas concholepas (false abalone or Loco), has been threatening not only the living of small-scale artisan fishers but also the ecosystem. In an attempt to strengthen the fishers’ livelihoods and at the same time recuperate the fish, the Chilean government introduced the regulatory measure: Management and Exploitation Areas for Benthic Resources (MEABRs), locally known as Management Areas (MAs) and in...

Sustainability, Human Well-Being, and the Future of Education

by Justin W. Cook and Justin W. Cook

This open access book explores the key dimensions of a future education system designed to enable individuals, schools, and communities to achieve the twin twenty-first century challenges of sustainability and human well-being. For much of the twentieth century, Western education systems prepared students to enter the workforce, contribute to society and succeed in relatively predictable contexts. Today, people are at the controls of the planet—making decisions that are dramatically reshaping social, economic, and environmental systems at a global scale. What is education’s purpose in this new reality? What and how must we learn now? The volatility and uncertainty caused by digitalization, globalization, and climate change weave a common backdrop through each chapter. Using case studi...

Settlement Patterns and Ecosystem Pressures in the Peruvian Rainforest: Understanding the Impacts of Indigenous Peoples on Biodiversity (Environmental Sustainability Series)

by Rodolfo Tello

To what extent do regional socioeconomic processes influence the level of ecosystem pressure being exerted by indigenous groups? In Manu National Park, one of the most important protected areas of the Peruvian rainforest, increments in the levels of environmental pressure have been associated with an increased disruption of the traditional livelihoods of the indigenous population, created mostly by the intensification of regional socioeconomic activities and changes in their settlement patterns. This short book examines the variation in the levels of ecological pressure created by indigenous groups, focusing on the socioeconomic drivers of indigenous environmental behavior in this critical natural habitat....
