For a Sustainable and Desirable Future
We are pleased to announce the debut of Solutions, an online and print publication devoted exclusively to showcasing bold and innovative ideas for solving the world’s environmental, ecological, and socio-economic problems.
Launching in January 2010, Solutions is a unique hybrid between a popular magazine and an authoritative peer-reviewed journal. The website, featuring our exclusive archive of peer-reviewed articles and online community of fellow problem solvers, can be found at: http://www.thesolutionsjournal.com.
Published bimonthly, and distributed internationally, Solutions will synthesize the best of our knowledge and creativity, driven by a vision of a sustainable and desirable future. Founded by the world-renowned scholars Robert Costanza, Paul Hawken, David Orr, and John Todd, the publication brings cutting edge ideas of academics and professionals to an audience of policy makers, business leaders, and engaged public.
We are soliciting articles that describe solutions for a sustainable and desirable world. Solutions should employ whole-system thinking and address but not be hobbled by the institutional and cultural changes that may be required. A solutions does not have to solve all problems, but it should recognize what problems it can solve and what other problems it might cause.
We are a non-profit, and rely solely on the contributions of engaged citizens and organizations to keep the conversation going and the path towards a sustainable and desirable future open. Please visit our website to become a sponsor, partner, or to contribute at any level.
