They invited a number of authors to write an article expressing personal insight and professional view on sustainability. The result is a book, which offers a reader a full range of different perspectives, topics and ideas how to focus on global problems.

Senator Pacheco will centre his presentation of the book on the chapter that he wrote about what it is done in Massachusetts in terms of changing law to put in place policies to protect the climate and provide incentives to create growth in the so called green economy. Senator Pacheco is a member of the IFIMES Advisory Board.
