Under the topic “Sustainability,” you will find texts and artifacts related to a concept fundamental to “The Optimist Trilogy”: the ability of our way of life to continue into the future. Included in this category are related phrases such as “Sustainable Development,” “Resilience,” and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”). Sustainability — what it means, how to do it, how to get there — is a central theme of all three books.
Note: the featured image is the Sustainability Compass, which I developed in 1997 as a conceptual tool for understanding the systemically integrated, and direction-setting, nature of sustainability as a concept. The Compass is described in book 2 of the Trilogy, The Sustainability Transformation, and in several other books and journals.
