I don't know how to discuss about this nugget. So I am starting a discussion of my own.
In activity on Paul Gliding's "The Earth is Full" there was a question that:
Do you agree with Paul Gilding’s view that the global economic growth model needs to change? What is your reasoning?
So here is my answer.
Yes. I completely agree with Paul Gliding’s view that global economic growth model needs to change. It is inevitable that whatever human beings produce comes from the environment and affects it too. Our economics completely depends on the resources we obtain from environment and we need the environment as a waste receptacle. Hence, any activity will affect environment. In the 21st century I observe that everyone seeks betterment of their quality of life. This betterment is not based on equity. If someone is living and eating healthy, some other person isn’t. We need to reduce overuse so that every mouth can be satisfied. We need to stop chasing fossil fuels and switch to renewable energy. We can’t afford degradation and climate change, because our economies completely depend on our environment.

Do you agree? Please share your views.

Hi Zoobia
Thanks for sharing. I'm just working on some Sustainability Reporting projects and am both shocked at how many problems (and greed) the world is facing today, but also encouraged by how many initiatives there are e.g. the UN's SDGs and the work of organisations such as Transparency International to name just two ... so just felt like sharing too :)

Hello Zoobia

I also am in full agreement with the sentiments of the speaker in the video. The environment is rather delicate and is affected by activities of humans over time. We are consuming and polluting resources at an alarming rate.
