Developing Sustainable Environmental Responsibility is the first book of its kind, helping readers to embrace the extraordinarily large and often overwhelming field of environmental issues through the integration of individual perspectives and efforts in a shared context. It is an invaluable complement to specialized courses on environmental science, law, policy, journalism, diplomacy, economics, international relations, sociology, psychology and history. The book's overviews of history, consciousness, and the principles of democracy show how the environmental emergency can be addressed through rights-based governance and a focus on root causes and problem solving. It contains information and exercises that generate pragmatic hope and enhance skills necessary for removing barriers to progress.
