Overview

A consideration of the culture of sustainability and how it can be applied on a macro scale, this book identifies consumerism and materialism as keys to unsustainability and explains why a change of mentality and values is essential for the health of society. Jordi Pigem demonstrates how the values that contribute to social and ecological responsibility are the same ones that can lead to self-realization and fulfillment on a personal level, and how instituting these values on a global, personal, and social level can help both individuals and the global community forge a path in an ever-changing world.Una consideración de la cultura de sostenibilidad y cómo se puede aplicar a un nivel macro, este libro identifica al consumismo y materialismo como claves de la insostenibilidad y explica por qué un cambio de mentalidad y valores es imprescindible para el bienestar de la sociedad. Jordi Pigem demuestra cómo los valores que contribuyen a la responsabilidad social y ecológica son las mismas que pueden conducir a la autorrealización personal, y cómo instituir estos valores a nivel global, personal y social puede ayudar a orientar el rumbo tanto del individuo como de la comunidad global en un mundo en rápida transformación.
