People and Planet

In this section we’ll cover some of impacts that humans have had on the planet and how we can go about mitigating these problems as well as adapting to them. First we look at material flows and add the throughput of matter to the idea of the planets metabolism as well as looking at planetary boundaries. We’ll then look at how we could go about alleviating some of the pressures on the planet through technology. Finally we’ll look at the social side of sustainable development and discuss how best to discuss development.
