Summary
  • Sustainability science is a new academic discipline that has emerged in response to threats to the sustainability of the global environment. The purpose of this discipline is to help build a sustainable society by developing solutions to climate change, the exhaustion of resources, ecological destruction and other environmental crises that threaten the future of humanity. --
  • Sustainability science demands a realignment of existing academic disciplines. Whereas academia has moved inexorably in the direction of fragmentation into discrete fields of in-depth specialization, sustainability science seeks comprehensive, integrated solutions to complex problems and therefore requires a restructuring of education and research that spans multiple disciplines. This volume offers diverse approaches to the development of a transdisciplinary perspective that embraces the natural, social and human sciences in the quest for a sustainable society. --
  • Sustainability science further demands the development of policies that confront the pre-eminent social issue of the twenty-first century, the sustainability of the environment, in a way that protects the natural and cultural diversity of different regions of the planet and promotes the physical and economic health of their inhabitants. This volume strives for a global perspective while incorporating the wisdom and experience of societies on the local level. --
  • Hiroshi Komiyama is Chairman of Mitsubishi Research Institute, Inc., and President Emeritus, The University of Tokyo, Japan. --
  • Kazuhiko Takeuchi is Deputy Executive Director of the Integrated Research System for Sustainability Science (IR3S) and Professor at the Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, The University of Tokyo, and Vice-Rector of the United Nations University, Japan. --
  • Hideaki Shiroyama is Professor at the Graduate Schools for Law and Politics, The University of Tokyo, Japan. --
  • Takashi Mino is Professor at the Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, The University of Tokyo, Japan. --Book Jacket
