Sustainable Development Timeline: 1962 – 2010

By most calculations the “sustainable development movement“, albeit only latterly by that name. got underway with little initial fanfare with the release of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring in 1962. It has been a long and at times quite ragged history. Our friends over at Canada’s The International Institute for Sustainable Development have published the sixth edition of their Sustainable Development Timeline – 2010. (You can download the original document here.) If you have a good feel for this sequence you are already on the way to a first understanding of the broad dynamics of our assignment. We can then build on that.
