Following the publication last week of our first Rio+20 entry by Bridie Appleby-Gunnill, we can now bring you our next featured entry.
Tom’s entry highlighted a much-ignored dichotomy: that our reliance on governments to drive the sustainable development agenda forward is in direct contradiction to the pressure we place on politicians to position our own countries at the forefront of global development and prosperity.
Throwing our own Institute strapline (Enough, For All, Forever) back at us, and using some very clever analogies, Tom powerfully argued the case for an increased sense of personal responsibility – it certainly made all of the judging panel reflect on their own actions and their impact on sustainable development, and we hope it will do the same for you!
