Description:

"We are the first generation capable of determining the habitability of the planet for humans and other species," writes Anthony Cortese in the Foreword. "Teachers at every level can play an important role in helping us find a sustainable path." All who work with sustainability issues realize that it is a community project. We must decide collectively about the earth and its future. As a community -- be it a geographic, social, academic, or professional community -- we need to know where to begin, how to collaboratively work, and where to find resources. Most of us belong to communities that are concerned about sustainability issues, but do not have that as their primary mandate, such as a business, a history class, or a civic group. These groups have a tremendous opportunity to incorporate sustainability awareness into their activities. And this volume will help find those opportunities and make the best use of group resources.

Long interested in issues of sustainability, peace, and equity, the topics are reflected in his scholarhip. His research, in part supported by a National Kellogg Fellowship and a Fulbright Fellowship, has focused on the topics from a global perspective. Currently, Bill and colleagues are focusing on the use of Case Studies as a tool for growth and learning in geographic, as well as, social communities. Case Studies reflect grassroots learning and community building that is occurring globally, which can be facilitated and shared through the increased availability of new technologies.
