Problemfelder wie der Klimawandel, der Rückgang der Artenvielfalt und das Schwinden der Vorräte fossiler Energieträger stellen die Menschheit vor hochkomplexe Herausforderungen. Für eine angemessene Reaktion ist nicht nur ein erhebliches Sachwissen erforderlich, sondern auch die Fähigkeit, dies mit Blick auf die Erfordernisse einer nachhaltigen und im generationenübergreifenden Maßstab gerechten Entwicklung in wirksames Handeln umzusetzen. Ohne eine weltweite Bildungsinitiative, so heißt es etwa in der time table 21, sei dies nicht zu gewährleisten.

Die im Rahmen eines Projektes der Europäischen Akademie undesirable Neuenahr-Ahrweiler GmbH im interdisziplinären Diskurs erarbeitete Studie markiert die Erfordernisse eines nachhaltigen und gerechten Handelns und analysiert die notwendigen Voraussetzungen für dessen Erfolg. Auf der Grundlage klarer begrifflicher Unterscheidungen zwischen einem planungsrationalen Konzept der Nachhaltigkeit und einem an die moralphilosophische culture anschließenden Konzept der generationenübergreifenden Gerechtigkeit werden Strategien ausgewiesen, die in den Problemfeldern der genannten paintings dem Planen und Entscheiden des Einzelnen Orientierung bieten können. Die Umsetzung in wirksames Handeln setzt allerdings voraus, dass Zielkonflikte bewältigt und kollektive Entscheidungsdilemmata überwunden werden können, dass der Einzelne angesichts von Risiken, Ungewissheiten und überkomplexen Informationsmengen entscheidungs- und handlungsfähig bleibt und in der Lage ist, langfristige Pläne zu entwickeln. Die Kompetenzen, über die er hierfür verfügen muss und um deren Vermittlung sich schulische Bildung verstärkt bemühen sollte, werden aus den aufgewiesenen Handlungserfordernissen und den zu überwindenden Handlungshemmnissen systematisch abgeleitet und begründet. Die Studie schließt mit einem Katalog expliziter Empfehlungen, wie die Gesellschaft und ihre Institutionen eine Bildung für eine nachhaltige und gerechte Entwicklung umsetzen könnten.

Download E-books The Sixties and the World Event (Boundary 2: An International Journal of Literature and Culture) by Connery, Christopher, Spillers, Hortense (2009) Paperback PDF

By Christopher Connery, Hortense J. Spillers

This specific factor of boundary 2 revisits the Nineteen Sixties via an international and multidisciplinary lens. It treats the last decade as an international ancient occasion, comprising decolonization, liberation, revolution, and activities opposed to a number of institutions. enticing questions of background and temporality, this factor illustrates that persisted exploration and attention of the Nineteen Sixties all over the world are an important to a serious engagement with the present.Contributors to this factor characterize quite a lot of disciplines, from Latin American stories and sociology to political conception and literary feedback. they convey an international standpoint to the social and political legacy of the Sixties, bearing on the Caribbean, Latin the US, the previous USSR, China, and France, in addition to the us. One contributor provides a reexamination of Latin American armed struggles within the Sixties that foregrounds the really confident effect of those struggles on present-day Latin American society and politics. one other contributor interprets a seminal essay on Jos? Mart? written by means of one in all Cuba’s premiere intellectuals within the mid-1960s, whilst the process the Cuban revolution was once nonetheless doubtful. yet one more contributor considers the forces that experience sought to neutralize the struggles and negate the earnings of the African American liberation flow within the Sixties American South.Contributors.

Download E-books Fluid Catalytic Cracking: Science and Technology PDF

By John S. Magee

The first concentration of this publication as an entire is on functionality - functionality of the catalyst, of its floor, of the FCC unit, of the feedstocks hired, of the analytical tools used to represent the catalysts, and of environmentally directed laws that govern the creation of transportation fuels from petroleum. The emphasis on catalyst functionality, relatively advertisement functionality, primarily dictated that the bankruptcy authors be skilled business catalytic chemists and engineers. although, each one writer approached the duty with a simple legal responsibility to attach the roots of the technological know-how of FCC catalysis with the know-how. Fluid Catalytic Cracking: technology and expertise has been written for staff in business catalysis and academia, together with graduate scholars in chemistry or chemical engineering who're attracted to buying an total wisdom of 1 of the world's most vital components of catalysis. The ebook is concise, each one subject is taken care of in short; entire, all features of FCC catalysis are coated; and transparent, somebody all for this box will locate themes of curiosity.
