Summer reading?

3 Comments

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.

For ages I have tried to get my head around sustainability. What a difficult and complex thing it is.

So it was great to hear of the launch of the Sustainability Project by Haus Publishing – the creation of twelve books written in an accessible way but based on scientific and other expert opinion.

It is a complex topic – so there is an introductory book then eleven others covering population, water, food, health, energy, the oceans, climate change, natural diversity, resources, economics, and politics.

You can see the whole list here and buy them as a set.

Or buy them individually from, for example, Amazon.

Now that is what I call summer reading!

  1. Pete,
    Glad to see that you have enjoyed the books!

    If you would like to listen to three of our expert authors, speaking at our recent launch event, check out the audio:

    Best wishes from Haus Publishing and the Forum for Responsibility in Germany – and thanks for supporting our cause.

  2. From my reading of this book, it appears that sustainability = GMO. But what do you expect from the founder of a biotech company?

    I believe in consumer choice, i.e., the choice not to buy products contaminated by GM.

    No thanks for this book, tossed it back to the library.

  3. Hi Carol

    A bit confused by your comment – this post refers to 12 books. Which one are you referring to?

    Thanks
    Pete
