Pursuing Sustainability

Pursuing Sustainability

How do we achieve sustainability? In her new book, Pursuing SustainabilityPamela Matson, the Chester Naramore Dean of the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences, suggests that the ultimate determinants of intergenerational well-being should be thought of as the stocks of assets on which people now draw and will draw upon in the future to subsist and improve their lives – stocks that include natural, social, manufactured, human and knowledge capital.  The 2016 book is coauthored with William Clark of the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and and Krister Andersson of the University of Colorado at Boulder.
