The term "sustainability" is on everyone’s lips, but we still struggle to integrate it into our economic and social structures. Humans in the Global Ecosystem provides an overview of the current thinking on the concept of sustainable development and will stimulate fresh ideas on its further development.

The book:

  • addresses the position of humans in the global (eco)system
  • applies sustainability as a multi- and inter-disciplinary concept
  • considers the problems and the proposed solutions
  • highlights the necessary conditions for sustainable development

  • Understanding the challenge: the systems question
  • We humans: the agents of sustainable development
  • (Un)sustainable systems: analysis and strategic approaches
  • The transformation to sustainability
  • Mobility Summary and outlook

Pierre L. Ibisch is Professor of Nature Conservation at Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development, where he heads the Centre for Economics and Ecosystem Management. Colleagues who have contributed to this work are Heike Molitor, Alexander Conrad, Heike Walk, Vanja Spoo and Juliane Geyer.
