The Age of Sustainable Development by Jeffrey Sachs

The Age of Sustainable Development

by Jeffrey Sachs


Title Details

Running Time
22 Hrs.
Economist Jeffrey Sachs addresses the ongoing and urgent problem of sustainable development in these intimate MOOC course lectures provided by YouTube. Sachs begins with a sobering assessment of world affairs in the 21st century, where political gridlock and lack of public education has led the earth to the brink of depletion. Despite tremendous uncertainty, he is quick to argue that we mustn’t give up hope. As Sachs argues, ideas can change the world, citing examples from Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Eleanor Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy to back up the need for practical, step by step measures that break an idea down and provide steps towards progress. The course that follows will be Sach’s attempt to tackle the major public policy issues facing us today and will provide his ideas on how to address them.
