9780393337266: State of the World 2010: Transforming Cultures: From Consumerism to Sustainability (State of the World (Paperback))

The premier environmental nonprofit shows the ways to transform our consumer culture into a culture centered on sustainability.

For society to thrive long into the future, we must move beyond our unsustainable consumer culture to one that respects environmental realities. In State of the World 2010, the Worldwatch Institute’s award-winning research team reveals not only how human societies can make this shift but also how people around the world have already started to nurture a new culture of sustainability. Chapters present innovative solutions to global environmental problems, focusing on institutions that are the principal engineers of culture, such as governments, the media, and religious organizations. Written in clear, concise language, with easy-to-read charts and tables, State of the World presents a view of our changing world that we, and our leaders, cannot afford to ignore.

About the Author :

The Worldwatch Institute is a Washington, DC-based nonprofit research and publishing organization dedicated to fostering the evolution of an environmentally sustainable society.

Review :

"This is the definitive guide to culture and sustainability...If you're involved in transforming our world for the better, it is essential reading!"
-Tim Jackson, Author of Prosperity Without Growth

"This year's State Of The World report is a cultural mindbomb exploding with devastating force. I hope it wakes a few people up." -Kalle Lasn, Editor of Adbusters magazine

"State of the World 2010: Transforming Cultures is breaking new ground. We are paying a high price for ignoring the issues of consumption and consumerism for so long. What a wonderful book this is to guide us into the years ahead."
-Gus Speth, Author of The Bridge at the Edge of the World

"Worldwatch has taken on an ambitious agenda in this volume. No generation in history has achieved a cultural transformation as sweeping as the one called for here...it is hard not to be impressed with the book's boldness."
-Muhammad Yunus, founder of the Grameen Bank

"If we continue to think of ourselves mostly as consumers, it's going to be very hard to bring our environmental troubles under control. But it's also going to be very hard to live the rounded and joyful lives that could be ours. This is a subversive volume in all the best ways!"
-Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth

“The most comprehensive, up-to-date, and accessible summaries . . . on the global environment.”
- E. O. Wilson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author

“Top-ranked annual books on sustainable development.”
- GlobeScan survey of sustainable experts
