Sustainability has developed into one of the central concepts of our time. But while, with increasing usage, the concept of sustainability suffers from growing emptiness and overextension on the one hand, it is simultaneously increasingly deprived of an open debate on possible realisations. What does sustainable development mean exactly then and how can our theoretical sustainability triad—environment, economy, and society—be implemented in praxis?
The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) has taken a critical approach to the concept of sustainability and is developing ideas on how the notion of sustainability in political practice can promote comprehensive social change.
In the run-up to and during the UN Climate Change Conference in Doha the editors will be blogging live at the FES Sustainability Blog. They will present you impressions, information and important news around COP 18.
Also, have a look at the interview series to find out what leading experts from politics and civil society expect from COP 18!
