Social and cultural sustainable development and education and engineering practice.
M.Eng. McGill University 2013, eScholarship id: 114294.
"Sustainable development, as it is understood and accepted presently, has been embraced by nearly the entire world; however, the complexities of economic, environmental, social, cultural and other related issues and the interactions between them have not yet been fully comprehended. While the economic and environmental aspects of sustainable development have received much attention since the introduction of the concept, the socio-cultural aspects remain conceptually less developed. The objective of this thesis is to explore the notion of social sustainability as well as the role of culture in sustainable development. Elimination of the conceptual and analytical barriers of socio-cultural aspects of sustainable development along with the integration of social sustainability and incorporation of culture into the sustainable development agenda are needed to address the main challenges of sustainable development, especially in developing countries. Furthermore, education has been identified as a key social strategy for promoting sustainable development. By fundamentally changing the educational system at all levels to incorporate the principles, values and lifestyles required for sustainable development, a more sustainable future in terms of environmental integrity, economic viability and a just society can be created. Engineering education, particularly at higher levels for decision-makers, researchers and teachers needs to be reoriented towards sustainable development aimed at cultivating environmentally-aware attitudes, skills and behaviour patterns, as well as a sense of ethical responsibility. Over the last two decades the world has witnessed an increase in frequency and impact of natural and man-made disasters. By increasing the capacity of nations to prepare for or cope with these disasters, the international community can limit the major loss of human lives and livelihoods, the destruction of economic and social infrastructure, as well as environmental damages, It can also progress more effectively towards the achievement of sustainable development. The significance of the socio-cultural aspects of sustainable development as well as the role of education for building a culture of safety and resilience have been presented as a case study of Haiti."
