Sustainable Prosperity – Interview on Radio New Zealand

Radio NZOver the Easter break I heard a very good interview on Kim Hill’s Saturday morning programme. The interview was with Bronwyn Hayward Associate Professor of Politics and head of the Department of Political Science at the University of Canterbury, who will lead one of nine research teams for the new international Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity (CUSP).

In short, “Sustainable prosperity” would come as a result of sustainable development that enables all human beings to live with their basic needs met, with their dignity acknowledged, and with abundant opportunity to pursue lives of satisfaction and happiness, all without risk of denying others in the present and the future the ability to do the same. This means not just preventing further degradation of Earth’s systems, but actively restoring those systems to full health. Source: Worldwatch.org
