Sustainable Means Bunkty to Me | Do the Math | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

Sustainability, in Numbers BY by Tom Murphy. Tom is an associate professor of physics at the University of California, San Diego.

 

I have made the case in the past that growth—either in physical measures like population, energy use, etc., or in economic terms—cannot continue indefinitely in our finite world. This post rounds out the trilogy.

Sacred Economics - VIDEO - Money, Gift and Society in the Age of Transition

Sacred Economics - VIDEO - Money, Gift and Society in the Age of Transition | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

by Charles Eisenstein:

Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth.

Today, these trends have reached their extreme - but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.

Making a Sustainability Perspective Second Nature in Education

Making a Sustainability Perspective Second Nature in Education | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

FAST COMPANY: This blog is part of our Inspired Ethonomics series. In Part 1 of this series, we noted that our dominant economic system is not only failing to deliver, it is destroying the life-support system of the only planet we've got. With population on track to grow to 9 billion by 2050 and huge increases in consumption and demand from the developing world, a dramatic rethinking is overdue. Higher education must lead this rethinking.

Will Markets Survive the End of Growth? - Paul Gilding

Will Markets Survive the End of Growth? - Paul Gilding | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

Whenever anyone questions the way things are, from the Occupy protestors through to people like me arguing that economic growth will end in tears and crisis, the response is very often, but “markets are wonderful and efficient way of organising our society”. I say what? That’s like saying to someone who says “I don’t like oranges” that “you’re wrong, you haven’t tasted this great cheese”. It’s an irrelevant and illogical response.

When Environmentalists Collaborate - The Wages of Compromise

When Environmentalists Collaborate - The Wages of Compromise | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

The buzz this year among the professionals is “Collaboration” with the Agencies and industries in the business of cutting trees for profit under the rubric of “forest health.” This was started back in early Clintontime with the Big Foundations’ Community-Based Solutions’ Quincy Library Group in the Sierra. This 50-foundation effort has metastasized and is now the preferred model for the eco-wonks and their giant non-profits funders. From the point of view of forest activists without any financial horse in the race, the evidence is in: “Collaboration” is decimating forests and harming the planet.

European leaders on Friday (2 March) could throw their weight behind a plan to convert the relatively powerless UN Environment Programme (UNEP) into a world body with the muscle to oversee treaties and protect the ecology.

(Lest privatization totally destroys the planet in their lust for resources, land and water rights, industrial fishing and agriculture, with little or no concern for the devastation left behind in the name of "profits"..pdjmoo)

Convergence economy: Rethinking international development in a converging world

Convergence economy: Rethinking international development in a converging world | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

Cross-sector convergence will play a key role in finding solutions to the world's most pressing development issues

In the future we are likely to see a new breed of organisation that doesn't fit neatly into the standard descriptors used in the private, public or nonprofit sectors. These will be hybrids—organisations that have some of the attributes of each or all. Their leaders will think and act in terms of a convergent value chain — a flexible model in which different participants play different roles at different times, according to the recipients' needs and according to which entity has the necessary mix of skills and resources.
