Sustainable development, the intelligence of the 21st century

Dominique Bidou    Editions PC - November 2011 351 p.

For millennia, "Grow and multiply" has been the guideline that has shaped our mentalities, organized our societies. In this century, we will have to find a new vision of the future. The future of a humanity whose population will have stabilized, and still marvel at the life, beauty and generosity of the planet. A formidable challenge and an extraordinary opportunity. It is up to our generation to write humanity's new roadmap. It is not without risk, but what an adventure! It is this research that we call sustainable development. Based on talent and sensitivity and no longer on oil. The intelligence of the 21st century. A collective work in which everyone is called upon to participate.

In a period marked by multiple financial, societal and ecological crises, Dominique Bidou provides an expert analysis, elaborated in a very concrete way in contact with the realities of the building industry, and enriched by his many experiences. This essay is written in a very direct way and sheds light on sustainable development in an original and resolutely constructive way. To enable everyone in turn to become an "expert" and find their own path towards sustainable development. 

An engineer and demographer by training, Dominique Bidou was a director at the Ministry of the Environment. Honorary President of the HQE association and President of the noise information and documentation centre, he is a consultant in sustainable development. He writes a column on sustainable development: http://www.db-dd.org
