Project Details

Description

Complex systems like our societies are often dealt with through indicators, which are selected as guideposts to indicate whether the system is on the track of development wanted. Sustainable development of our societies is often expressed as the aim. The project is an attempt to suggest - not the actual appropriate indicators - but rather some guidelines on how to select the indicators in a democratic process.
The working group consists of around twenty researchers from all over the world, all members of the Balaton Group. The project was finished by a report "Indicators and Information for Sustainable Development", written by Donella Meadows, Dartmouth College, N.H., USA, published by The Sustainability Institute, PO Box 174, Hartland Four Corners, VT 05049, USA.
