A ‘greenprint’ for Sustainable Growth and Social Well Being...

cite_soleil_haiti

If you visit Cité Soleil in Haiti or any other of the world’s poorest mega slums, you will find children picking through giant piles of junk, playing in gullies running with polluted water and returning home to crowded shacks with the most unsanitary conditions. If you go to affluent Vienna, you will see children playing in parks and kicking soccer balls on clean streets. When they go home, they do so with the certainty of enjoying clean water and good sanitation. At first, this might seem like an unbalanced comparison. Vienna is the crown jewel of affluent Austria, so of course it can afford a clean environment. But that is exactly the point. There’s growing recognition that along with a clean environment, economic growth and social well being are integral to sustainability. All three pillars make for sustainability – if even one is missing, the other two will lose support and collapse.

new_zealand_sentient_animals

New Zealand just took a huge a step forward for animal welfare by legally recognizing them as “sentient” beings. The amendment to New Zealand law on behalf of the The Animal Welfare Amendment was passed on Tuesday. The new bill states that animals, like humans, are “sentient” beings — meaning they are able to perceive and feel things. “To say that animals are sentient is to state explicitly that they can experience both positive and negative emotions, including pain and distress,” said Dr Virginia Williams, chair of the National Animal Ethics Advisory Committee. “The explicitness is what is new and marks another step along the animal welfare journey.” The bill also includes banning cosmetic testing on animals, which was recently put into law last month.

In March, Stewart had Farm Sanctuary co-founder Gene Baur on as his guest to discuss his new book, Living the Farm Sanctuary Life.
