The German national sustainability strategy

Article Type: News From: International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education, Volume 12, Issue 4

How do we want to live today and in the future? How carefully is Germany really managing its natural resources? How is it shaping up to its national and international responsibilities for ensuring the sustainable management of the natural resource base on which we all depend? These questions are dealt with in the German National Sustainability Strategy, which is implemented by the German Government. The strategy outlines the sustainability objectives of the German Government and is periodically reviewed, incorporating the views of citizens and associations voiced during consultation phases and at hearings.
