In this module you have been introduced to:

multiple definitions of ‘sustainability’,

examples of environmental and social issues that are invoked by this term

the idea that these issues are REAL, made clear when they are examined from the deep-time perspective that the arts and humanities provide.

the suggestion that the actions of the West, and Western worldviews are unsustainable.

the need for us to think creatively to find solutions

the probability that solutions are likely to come from the ground up, rather than top down.

the belief that people within the Arts and Humanities can make a difference to creating a sustainable future for the world.
