What does it mean to live a good life in a time when the planet is overheating, the human population continues to steadily reach new peaks, oceans are turning more acidic, and fertile soils the world over are eroding at unprecedented rates? These and other simultaneous harms and threats demand creative responses at several levels of consideration and action. Written by an international team of contributors, this book examines in-depth the relationship between sustainability and the good life. Drawing on wealth of theories, from social practice theory to architecture and design theory, and disciplines, such as anthropology and environmental philosophy, this volume promotes participatory action-research based approaches to encourage sustainability and wellbeing at local levels. It covers topical issues such the politics of prosperity, globalization, and indigenous notions of "the good life" and happiness". Finally it places a strong emphasis on food at the heart of the sustainability and good life debate, for instance binding the global south to the north through import and exports, or linking everyday lives to ideals within the dream of the good life, with cookbooks and shows. This interdisciplinary book provides invaluable insights for researchers and postgraduate students interested in the contribution of the environmental humanities to the sustainability debate.

"No one can promise you that a life lived for others will bring you a deep sense of satisfaction, but it's certain that nothing else will." Hugh Mackay has spent his entire working life asking Australians about their values, motivations, ambitions, hopes and fears. Now, in The Good Life, he addresses the ultimate question: What makes a life worth living? His conclusion is provocative. The good life is not the sum of our security, wealth, status, postcode, career success and levels of happiness. The good life is one defined by our capacity for selflessness, the quality of our relationships and our willingness to connect with others in a useful way. Mackay examines what is known as the Golden Rule through the prisms of religion, philosophy, politics, business and family life. And he explores the numerous and often painful ways we distract ourselves from this central principle: our pursuit of pleasure, our attempts to perfect ourselves and our children, and our conviction that we can have our lives under control. Argued with all the passion and intelligence we have come to expect from one of Australia's most prolific and insightful authors, The Good Life is a book that will start conversations, ignite arguments and possibly even change the way we live our lives.

This book is about moves and energies of leadership. Anthropologically, human beings move in eight directions. Eight moves are BACKWARD, FORWARD, RIGHTWARD, LEFTWARD, INWARD, OUTWARD, UPWARD and DOWNWARD. In each move, there is an energy, BACKWARD – Historical Consciousness, FORWARD – Vision of the future, RIGHTWARD – Power and Authority, LEFTWARD – Love and Flexibility, INWARD - Attitude, OUTWARD - Expressions, UPWARD - Transcendence and DOWNWARD – pragmatism and Usefulness. Success of leadership lies in the ways in which a leader realizes the energies and use them to achieve goals of an organisation. Developing leadership skills must focus on these energies, not just on skills. All these eight moves and the eight energies are interconnected and interrelated. One does not have any meaning if isolated from the other. In managing human resources, all the movements and energies have to be considered equally. When you talk about being conscious of the past, immediately you need to place your future in sight. When you realise the energy of power-fullness you need to soften it with love and emotional appropriateness. In the same way, your attitude should be seen on your actions. There must be constant move between the energies to make a leader dynamic leader.
