wyd. 1, 2016, 214 s. Especially since the UN-generated Brundtland Report (1987) the discourse of sustainable development, and accompanying societal processes, have been significant features of planning and management by many governments, corporations, universities, and other organizations. Sustainable development has continued to change since its origins, and presents a challenge to interpret, evaluate, and respond to with pragmatic decision-making, in ever-shifting contexts. Sustainable development has been articulated during a time when major changes have been occurring in the global political economy and in many cultures. Environmental problems and troubling new normative issues have come to the fore. Some problems and possibilities for sustainable development is an interdisciplinary inquiry that takes the post-1989 transformation in Central Europe (including Poland) as a revealing part of a truly global and multifocal transformation in which sustainability has a major role. The transformation, this book argues, increasingly necessitates worldwide education about fundamental features of societal development; notably, specifically sustainable development and its vicissitudes.
