25 Apr

On June 22, 2012, delegates from around the world will converge in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for a global conference on sustainable development, twenty years after the first Rio conference—the 1992 “Earth Summit”. In anticipation of Rio+20, a diverse group of U.S. thought leaders has published an article titled “Creating the Future We Want” in the upcoming summer issue of Sustainability Science, Practice, & Policy. Pointing to emerging concepts such as “green economy” and “shared value”, the authors claim that global sustainability can be realized through effective collaborations, progressive business strategies, enlightened regulations and policies, and public support and understanding.

The article, part of SSPP’s Policy Debate series, inlcudes

  • an introductionfrom SSPP Journal Editor, Maurie J. Cohen;
  • the article, “Creating the future we want” by Alan D. Hecht, Joseph Fiksel, Scott C. Fulton, Terry F. Yosie, Neil C. Hawkins, Heinz Leuenberger, Jay S. Golden, & Thomas E. Lovejoy;
