Transitioning Toward Sustainability

Transitioning Toward Sustainability

(p.209) 8 Transitioning Toward Sustainability
Ensuring Greater Yellowstone's Future

Susan G. Clark

Yale University Press

This chapter examines several alternatives for the challenges faced in greater Yellowstone for transitioning toward sustainability. The exploitive single- and multiple-use management, the type that many individuals and agencies carry out today, has caused the problems which are being faced currently. Radical change, leading to improved design rationality, would entail people moving outside and beyond their original frames of reference, and fundamentally redefining the challenges. The best option is transitioning toward sustainability by improving existing management policy, changing problem-solving strategies, and transforming leaders' skills and behavior. This requires imagination, creativity, the upgrading of skills, and the development of a practical response that permits leaders and citizens to orient to problems comprehensively and practically.

Keywords:   sustainability, radical change, management policy, problem-solving strategies, practical response
