why & when?

UN Secretary General’s warning!

Excerpts from Remarks by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to the World Economic Forum Session on “Redefining Sustainable Development” in Davos, Switzerland, 28 Jan. 2011

“We mined our way to growth. We burned our way to prosperity. We believed in consumption without consequences...

Over time, that model is a recipe for national disaster. It is a global suicide pact...

we need a revolution

Revolutionary thinking. Revolutionary action...

It is easy to mouth the words ‘sustainable development’, but to make it happen we have to be prepared to make major changes - in our lifestyles, our economic models, our social organization, and our political life...

...no time to waste”

why & when?
part of the problem or solution?

apathy

The causes of human suffering and environmental degradation are large, complex and global.

The solutions seem so impossible that we hide and slip into a coma of apathy.

This apathy makes each of us part of the problem.

excess consumption

Consumption beyond one’s needs is excess.

In a world of limited resources such consumption automatically  deprives others- resulting in poverty, inequality, injustice, conflicts, deprivation, shortages and social and environmental ills.

This way of life makes each of us part of the problem.

take responsibility

It is our ethical responsibility to limit our consumption and accumulation to only our needs.

This way of living makes each of us a part of the solution.
