Think Ecology, Do Ecology and Save Ecology- Is it a Better Pathway to the Long-lasting Green Economy instead of the Mythical Efforts as Green Growth or Sustainable Development, or Not??

Rabin Das [15]

Abstract: It is twenty four years since the Rio conference which debated on Our Common future and the passage of the Agenda 21 which summarizes the core thinking of the global community on the question of sustainability of human settlements. The World Commission on Environment and Development (Brundtland Commission) defines sustainable development as meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the needs of future generations. It stresses intergenerational equity. The World Summit on Sustainable Development, 1992, 2002, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 held in Rio de Jeneiro (Brz. ), Johannesburg (SA), Rio de Jeneiro (Brz. ), London (UK), London (UK) and New York (USA), mentions the three components of sustainable development economic development, social development and environmentally sustainable development, as interdependent and mutually reinforcing pillars. But, doing or maintaining the Sustainable Development is at the zenith of the public debate and global agenda. Recently, to date, different environmental issues have not been effectively addressed in degrading world analyses and greenway policy formulations. All of nations most of the ecological and environmental systems are badly polluted and degraded. The pollution adversely affects the environment, threatens public health and reduces the flow and regeneration of resource available for human use. Hence, is sustainable development really this easy, we merely have to stick with the status quo This is unfortunate that there are some unanswered questions on Sustainable Development! So, there is a big asking on the typical subject as Nature + Development The Pathway to Sustainable Development. -A Myth or Reality Under this backdrop, this article reveals that there is an urgent need to free the discourse on sustainability from ideas and knowledge that has been germinated in the Western world whose developmental contexts are entirely distinct from the developing world. Slogan for both present and future world should be Think, Plan and Act Locally, Support Nationally and Realize Globally. There should be needed to take the 4R policy on Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover of resources. This paper wants to say, what we need is a culture of do ecology, i. e. , meeting the needs of the current and future generations without ecological harm. What we need is a culture of save ecology, i. e. , protecting, preserving and conserving the nature, natural resources, the living and non-living correlation, the man-nature inter-relationship and green ward activities without ecological deterioration. What we need is a culture of think ecology, i. e. , making the eco-centric idea for the social, cultural, economic, political, administrative and also spiritual development without undermining the base of local, regional, national and global ecology.

Keywords: intergenerational equity, the World Summit on Sustainable Development, environmental issues, 4R policy, do ecology, save ecology and think ecology
