In the contemporary modern world, sustainability is a major concern for human beings. Challenges such as climate change, global warming, resource scarcity, decreasing biodiversity, food shortage and an ever increasing resource-rich lifestyle have been challenging the human civilization’s sustainability. However, issues such as increasing inequity, social cleavages, unequal distribution of wealth, information and influence makes it more challenging to maintain an equitable and sustainable balance. Not only the use of resources, but also every activity, practice, technology, and infrastructure has to be sustainable and equitable. This book focuses on various aspects of Economic Democracy, Social Empowerment, Sustainable Development, Inclusive Growth, Economic Development, Climate Change, Green Technology, Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Sustainable Management Practices and Policy, Socioeconomics, and Law that impact the equitable sustainability of the human civilization. In all, the book provides a diversified perspective on sustainability and equity keeping economic democracy and social empowerment at its centre.
