Ecological Limits to Development: Living with the Sustainable Development Goals
This session celebrates the open access release of The Ecological Limits to Development!
Katie Kish and Stephen Quilley critique and reimagine the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The existing SDGs are challenged through perspectives of ecological economics and complexity thinking. New goals that align more thoroughly to biophysical limits to growth are suggested.
Ways in which this set of new SDGs could be made usable for Canadian municipalities are also considered.

- Drawing on ideas from H.T. Odum, Herman Daly, Zigmunt Bauman, and many others, this book provides guiding research for a convergence between North and South that is bottom-up, household-centred, and predicated on a re-emerging domain of Livelihood.
