Obstacles to Sustainability: Is Sustainability Doomed to Fail?
Ismael Bena - MBA, Management Consultant, Netherlands, SIG Leader
A recent quote from Confino, J. (2013):
"Sustainability movement will fail unless it creates a compelling future vision. We will only create prosperity within planetary boundaries if we start to really believe it is possible".
Confino and others argue that without a clear overall vision of the future, which we all are willing to pursue in our quest for sustainability, we will not be able to close the ranks and reach a mainstream audience to embrace it.
