Description

This work outlines an accessible framework for the current and future exploration of sustainable development. It explores the issue from the global and the local levels of analysis. The book draws on insights provided by Ulrich Beck's "World Risk Society", testing the hypothesis that the world has entered an era of reflexive modernity providing synergies between theoretical assertions and empirical observations. Taking these unique insights into the local arena the book outlines the transmission of sustainable development from the global to the local scale through the medium of an energy reduction scheme designed to mitigate global warming through behavioral change.
