Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Sachunterricht, Heimatkunde (Grundschulpadagogik), Note: 2,0, Universitat Erfurt (Erziehungswissenschaftliche Fakultat), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Habt Ehrfurcht vor dem Baum! Er ist ein einziges grosses Wunder, und euren Vorfahren war er heilig. Die Feindschaft gegen den Baum ist ein Zeichen der Minderwertigkeit eines Volkes und von niedriger Gesinnung des Einzelnen." (Alexander von Humboldt) Das Zitat des Naturforschers und Geografen Alexander von Humboldt macht unmissverstandlich klar, dass diejenigen, die der Natur feindselig gegenuberstehen, ungebildete Menschen sind. Im Umkehrschluss lasst sich behaupten, dass hingegen gebildete Menschen sich die Natur zum Freund machen. Ebenso lasst sich interpretieren, dass die Natur den Menschen heutzutage nicht mehr heilig ist. Die Bildung des Menschen stellt nach dem Verstandnis des Zitats eine wesentliche Grosse dar. Daher ist es uberaus wichtig, dass Bildungseinrichtungen in Zeiten fortschreitender Naturentfremdung geeignete Verfahren und Methoden entwickeln mussen, um diesen Trend entgegenzuwirken. Um die Natur verstehen zu konnen, ist es hilfreich, diese zu erleben und nicht nur von Berichten oder anderen sekundaren Quellen zu zehren. Seit vielen Jahren versuchen verschiedene Institutionen, die Bewahrung der Natur durch Aufklarungsarbeit zu gewahrleisten und die Menschen zu einer engeren Naturverbundenheit zu bewegen. Ziel der Umweltbildung ist unter anderem, dass die Menschen begreifen sollen, dass sie von der Natur abhangig sind und daher ein kluger und zukunftssicherer Umgang der naturlichen Ressourcen von Noten ist. Auf der neunten Jahreskonferenz des Rates fur Nachhaltige Entwicklung, am 23.11.2009, lobte und kritisierte die deutsche Bundeskanzlerin die Fortschritte der BRD hinsichtlich der nachhaltigen Entwicklung. In ihrer Rede griff sie das Motto des Nachhaltigkeitsrates, Nachhaltigkeit in einer sich andernden Welt - Weichenstellung fur Deutschland," auf u

What skills and competencies are needed for individuals to lead a successful and responsible life, both in the workplace and in other social environments, and for society to face the challenges of the present and future? What are the foundations (normative, theoretical, and conceptual) for defining and selecting a limited set of key competencies? These are among the important questions, of considerable relevance for fields such as education and training, employment, social affairs and welfare, health, and justice, that provided the starting point for an international and interdisciplinary endeavor carried out by the Swiss Federal Statistical Office and the National Center for Education Statistics, US Department of Education under the auspices of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The current volume, which has resulted from this work, compiles essays from renowned scholars who explore these questions from multiple perspectives (anthropology, economics, history, philosophy, psychology, and sociology), along with commentaries from leading representatives of policy and practice who provide an important complement to the reflection on key competencies. This volume thus presents a multifaceted sketch of issues related to defining and selecting key competencies in an open, still ongoing debate at national and international levels.

Divided into three sections, this book explores the three main pillars of sustainable development, namely economy, environment and society, and their interlinkages at the regional level. The first section, Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) for sustainable development, focuses on international agreements and national legislation, as well as the challenges in implementing ABS in e.g. India. In turn, the second section examines the process of forming Biodiversity Management Committees (BMCs) at the Local Self Government (LSG) level to promote environmental sustainability, highlighting local and community-level conservation initiatives that have led to the conservation of habitats and species. The third section addresses poverty eradication and food security. The case studies included demonstrate how the combination of traditional knowledge and modern techniques can enhance the productivity of traditional crop varieties, yielding greater benefits for communities. The aim of this volume is to disseminate the lessons learned from these case studies, as well as the findings from projects already in place, which can offer recommendations that can be applied to similar problems elsewhere in an attempt to find environmental solutions for sustainable development. Further, it introduces readers to new approaches to inclusive development, demonstrating that participation and grass root empowerment are key drivers of equitable and sustainable development.

Forty years ago, The Limits to Growth study addressed the grand question of how humans would adapt to the physical limitations of planet Earth. It predicted that during the first half of the 21st century the ongoing growth in the human ecological footprint would stop-either through catastrophic "overshoot and collapse"-or through well-managed "peak and decline." So, where are we now? And what does our future look like? In the book 2052, Jorgen Randers, one of the coauthors of Limits to Growth, issues a progress report and makes a forecast for the next forty years. To do this, he asked dozens of experts to weigh in with their best predictions on how our economies, energy supplies, natural resources, climate, food, fisheries, militaries, political divisions, cities, psyches, and more will take shape in the coming decades. He then synthesized those scenarios into a global forecast of life as we will most likely know it in the years ahead. The good news: we will see impressive advances in resource efficiency, and an increasing focus on human well-being rather than on per capita income growth. But this change might not come as we expect. Future growth in population and GDP, for instance, will be constrained in surprising ways-by rapid fertility decline as result of increased urbanization, productivity decline as a result of social unrest, and continuing poverty among the poorest 2 billion world citizens. Runaway global warming, too, is likely. So, how do we prepare for the years ahead? With heart, fact, and wisdom, Randers guides us along a realistic path into the future and discusses what readers can do to ensure a better life for themselves and their children during the increasing turmoil of the next forty years.

Why do well-intentioned plans for improving the human condition go tragically awry? In a wide-ranging and original study, James C. Scott analyzes failed cases of large-scale authoritarian plans in a variety of fields. He argues that centrally managed social plans derail when schematic visions are imposed on long-established structures without taking into account preexisting interdependencies.

Higher Education for Sustainable Development

This book asks how higher education should approach the task of educating for sustainability and then sets to answering it. It provides a guide for those who advocate for sustainability and for those who do not and makes a point of emphasising that all in higher education have the capacity and willingness to contribute in some way. The challenge is to find an approach that unifies the efforts of higher education teachers towards sustainability objectives, rather than dividing them. People at universities across the world were consulted and a grounded theory was devised. This encourages all university teachers to teach what they want to teach openly and honestly, about sustainability or not; but on the way to ensure that their students develop the critical skills that will enable them to fully understand what is being taught and what they are learning.

Emerging to the forefront of sustainable production and consumption are a promising and rapidly evolving concept known as Voluntary Standard Systems (VSS). They encompass the three pillars of sustainability – social, environmental and economic aspects and consequently they can be considered as a tool, which makes sustainable development visible. Currently, they are becoming a significant element in international trade and in the promotion of sustainable development strategies, especially in the context of globalised markets and supply chains. This volume provides a comprehensive overview of the current VSS concepts: from their nature and functioning, to the future outlook for their development. It places VSS in the broader context of global development issues and challenges, including development policy and international sustainability commitments, progress towards achieving ‘green economy’ and meeting climate protection targets. The volume contains also a representative selection of case studies which demonstrate their wide range of application in different sectors of the economy.
