Rethinking Sustainability

Sustainability is one of the most important topics of our times. This issue of friedrich deals with the topic of sustainability from a range of different perspectives. Is it possible to mobilise the international community to make a joint effort to tackle the challenges of our times? And how fair and sustainable is healthcare across the globe? Another vital aspect for a sustainable lifestyle is a healthy environment, a healthy climate. Our magazine takes a look at how scientists are using complex computer models to research the workings of our climate and how it is likely to change in the future. Our western lifestyle is strongly influenced by the economy. The question arises as to whether it is time for a new economic order. As you can see, ecological concerns are only part of the complex concept of ‘sustainability’.
