Example text

And because this process is self-propelled, it has no particular point of departure, no predetermined objective, and no defined destination. As it moves, it causes conflict, effects change, and transforms people’s attitudes, ways of thinking, values, perceptions, economic conditions, and social and political structures. Regardless of time and place, all individuals, groups, institutions, organizations, societies, and states are continuously faced with issues to consider, complex decisions to make, and multiple actions to take.

Because of such actions and reactions, actual change precipitated by a changed state of mind is more likely to be revolutionary rather than evolutionary, causing open conflict before effecting the desired change. Change may still occur at both levels without lag, transforming the prevailing state of mind and reforming economic, political, and sociocultural affairs simultaneously. Change, nevertheless, produces winners and losers; the first tend to accept change, the latter to detest it. Eventually, new states of political, economic, and social affairs appear, causing existing socioeconomic and sociopolitical gaps to widen and sociocultural divides to deepen.

Because all these issues are global, the only development that could be sustainable is global development that makes national changes an integral part of a global grand design. And because every major change touches the lives of everyone in society, the process of sustainable development cannot succeed unless we understand it and manage it as a participatory process. Every member of the world community thus must feel that he or she has a stake in change, and a vital role to play in making change, and that the benefits sustainability generates are shared by all.
