Growth Discourse

In 1972, the Club of Rome’s famous report “The Limits to Growth” pre­sen­ted some chal­len­ging sce­na­rios for glo­bal sus­taina­bi­lity. Since then, environ­men­tal awa­ren­ess has been incre­a­sing. Rising energy demand and price pres­sure on the one and cli­mate cata­stro­phe and eco­lo­gi­cal destruc­tion on the other hand neces­si­tate a new debate on Sustainable deve­lop­ment and the alter­na­tive of a "steady state economy”.
