Sustainability week – connecting the dots

Sustainability Week is scheduled to run 25 to 29 July 2012 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg and will include a series of conferencing activities as well as an exhibition.  The event is based on the premise that appropriate responses to the current global crises need to take account of the interconnectedness of these issues. Climate change, oil/energy security, food security, waste generation, water and soil degradation, the destruction of habitat and the extinction of species, and now the financial crisis too, all impact on each other directly or indirectly. Understanding this interconnectedness is fundamental to understanding the true cost of our actions.  In this context, Sustainability Week aims to identify opportunities for change that recognise the ‘full picture’. Taking a broad view and engaging on specific issues, it will look at ways to make our economy and society more sustainable and resilient to external shocks – such as drought, extreme weather conditions, runaway oil prices and others.
