Description

In the face of growing anxiety about global environmental sustainability, George Francis, a leading authority in the field of sustainability studies, examines initiatives undertaken in Canada over the past twenty-five years to protect some of our unique environments. Focusing mainly on collaborative studies of thirty-one landscape regions – designated as “Biosphere Reserves” by UNESCO or as “Model Forests” by the Canadian Forest Service – Francis also summarizes smaller sustainability projects across the country. The author concludes on a hopeful note, looking at solutions considered, proposed, and in some cases already implemented by groups striving for sustainability in an increasingly complex world.
