Summary "The idea of time offers a novel perspective on what sustainable development is all about. Looking at issues affecting society and the environment through the prism of time conveys the urgency of the challenge and leads us to solutions we might not have thought of before. "About Time", edited by the leading British think-tank Forum for the Future, brings together ten of the world's leading thinkers and writers from disciplines including biology, business, sociology, ethnography, astronomy, philosophy, politics, history and sustainability in a collection of thought-provoking essays exploring the issue of time and how it relates to the environment, economy and society.
