Today, humanity faces the ultimate challenge: creating a sustainable future. It’s natural that everyone wants to live a long, meaningful life in optimal health. Because of this universal desire, we can integrate health and sustainability to create a proverbial North Star to guide our future development. Twelve dimensions of life synergize and balance into healthy living, while sustainable living depends on understanding and acting in integrity with reality. An ethical living model introduces a map of reality, so we can evaluate the consequences of our actions and choose how to live in harmony with other people, the environment, and evolutionary processes. The health dimensions, as well as global ethics, apply to all levels of human activity. Therefore, we now have universal tools to work to create healthy sustainable living for individuals, families, businesses, nations, and the entire global community.

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 find a mechanism that minimizes environmental risks for human sustainably. This is the idea of the interdisciplinary framework of “environmental risk management” theory, which advocates harmony between economic development and environmental conservation. Based on this theory, the Sustainable Living with Environmental Risk (SLER) programme, adopted by the Japanese Ministry of Education (MEXT) as one of its strategic programmes, has been training graduate students at the Yokohama National University, Japan, from 2009 to 2013 to become future environmental leaders who will take the initiative in reducing the level of environmental risks and in protecting natural resources in the developing nations of Asia and Africa. This book provides students and teachers of this new academic field with a comprehensive coverage of case studies of environmental risks and their practical management technologies not only in Japan but also in developing nations in Asia and Africa.

Sustainability, environmental impact, green design, urban sprawl -- all buzzwords we have become familiar with in the ongoing dialogue about climate change and global warming. This book presents student work that explores these issues and exemplifies the application of Ezio Manzini's theories of "enabling solutions". Students from the University of Calgary's Faculty of Environmental Design worked together to identify some of the challenges of suburbia with respect to sustainable design. Exploring such issues as the local quality of life, community cohesiveness, and environmental impacts of suburban areas, the workshop participants presented posters, tables, matrices, and other graphic materials that illustrate key concepts, the resources required, and the main players involved in their implementation. In addition to the student work showcased here, "Enabling Solutions" also includes essays by Manzini, Walker, and Wylant that contextualise the key issues and elaborate on the theoretical basis for the student workshop.

Green living begins at home, and New Green Home Solutions tells you how. Most of the energy-derived pollution we produce comes as a direct result of our homes - how we heat them, how we cool them, how we keep them well-lit and full of things that make our lives so comfortable. The good news is that we have tremendous power to create change. Renewable energy design, better insulation and more efficient appliances could reduce energy demands by 60 to 80 percent. By embracing conservation and renewable energy, we can win our energy independence and help save the planet. Dave Bonta, president and founder of USA Solar Stores, the largest alternative energy retailer in the Northeast, has written about alternative energy and sustainable living for Green Living, Back Home Magazine, Alternative Energy Retailer and The Vermont Guardian. Bonta has studied renewable energy and energy efficiency for more than twenty years, is a frequent speaker at major green energy conferences across America and is a tireless advocate for green living. Also president of BioQuantum, Inc., a bio-fuels company, Bonta is the creator of BackHome chapters in America and is president of a renewable energy community organization, The Sustainable Valley Group. Stephen Snyder, communications director for USA Solar Stores, left New York City in 1995 to start an organic herb farm in Vermont with his wife, Melissa. He holds a degree in radio, television and motion picture communications from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and has broad experience in communications, public affairs, and media relations. He also works as a freelance writer and has published The Brewmaster's Bible (HarperCollins), The Beer Companion (Simon & Schuster) and The Brewmaster's Recipe Manual.

Global population growth is putting our children and grandchildren at risk. Living a Sustainable Lifestyle for Our Children's Children shows how sustainable development is a process of living that cuts across many of the major concerns facing society today and establishes how we can move beyond these present risks. It presents an easy to understand description of sustainability, where humans find the means to coexist in a manner that maintains biodiversity, wildlands, and decent environments while also achieving economic prosperity and equality, present and future. The book challenges people to transform their awareness of human-nature interactions into a deeper commitment to both protecting and wisely using our global natural resources. Going beyond science, technology, and politics, this book discusses how we live and why we live the way we do, while addressing the basics of life: how to know what is in our water, air, food, and land. The good news is, a shift to sustainable development is occurring. Ordinary people living ordinary lives, looking at how they live, how that in turn affects nature, and how fundamental nature is to our existence, is the beginning. And, this book poses tough questions, not for another debate, but to initiate reader awareness, understanding, and motion. We hope to advance understanding of what people can do differently to alter the surging tide of material inequity and declining resources by offering numerous alternatives for the individual considering their ability to make a difference.

Across Disciplinary Boundaries Towards A Sustainable Life

The contributions in this book are fairly heterogeneous. They belong to a relatively large number of disciplines and / or sub-areas of certain disciplines. They contain problems and practical aspects of their possible solutions, strategies, methodologies and concepts as well as theories (see Part 1 – 8). We all know that it is difficult to link such problem solving processes to bigger units. It needs the steady development of an appropriate aware-ness of a problem or conflict, i.e. consciousness. Such “network-ing” should not be left to journalists alone, but should rather be integrated into higher education and research related to Sustain-able Development or Sustainable Life, in short Sustainability. Our survival seems to be threatened by various developments and complex problems. The Climate Change System and its con-sequences for ecology, economics and society, for example, is proclaimed to be one of our new enemies (Part 9). Experts suggest that stopping such negative trends could be possible through a change in human behaviour and through “reversals” in the con-nected systems or sub-systems. Attempts to get closer to this far reaching goal can be found in the articles of this book. But how can people be persuaded to change their behaviour?Changes of behaviour (human action) depend on human motivation. How can motivation be diagnosed in relation to Sustainability? One can assume that the theory of achievement motivation, its estab-lishment according to learning rules, its activation depending on associations and its adaptation to reality through the experience of success or failure in motivated actions is a valid platform to build on. The sustainability-imaginative stories written by stu-dents, for example, demonstrate the manner in which the struc-tured rules of motivated learning and acting are put in concrete terms (Part 10). We consider them to be an innovation, worthy of being tested and further developed so as to contribute to the creation of new motivation in and for Sustainability. Solving complex problems and conflicts is the content of another paper. Applying and testing the underlying psychological theory to economic / agribusiness problems / conflicts and their action programmes has been intended (see also Part 10).
