Abstract: 

"Sustainable Development" is the goal 2015-2030 of the global community of states, adopted by the United Nations. This book shows how ecology, economy and ethics are all needed to reach these goals. Understanding a concept like ‘sustainability' requires an understanding not only of what we are seeking to ‘sustain', but also how man's activities and needs are implicated in and can threaten the future of these biological systems. The articles in this book come from one of the key countries of the world, India, whose population represents almost 20% of the world's population. Questions surrounding economic development and environmental sustainability are fundamental to understanding the country's future, and how it will tackle difficult issues, like the eradication of poverty.

Abstract:
As global ethics emerges as an important answer to the common issues facing humankind, we cannot spare a reflection on the process leading to a consensus on global values. If we are to break political, economic, ideological, cultural, religious and gender-based patterns of domination in the debate on global ethics, we must ensure that all parties to the dialogue are able to express their values freely and in their own fashion.

Abstract:
Religions influence all sectors of society. To a great extent, this is true for the Protestant Genevan Reformer John Calvin (1509-1564) with his global influence and impact. His work is still highly relevant to today's economy. In his writings he emphasized on equitable markets and fair interests. In politics, he was an early door-opener for democracy, and he approached science with an open minded curiosity. His ethics is deeply rooted in his faith in the merciful and guiding Christian God. All human efforts should serve the Glory of God.

Abstract:
Fundamentalism is a reality on all continents, in all world religions and in different political and economic movements and world views. It influences political, cultural, religious and economic development. "Overcoming fundamentalism" is a program. The contributors of this book do not call for military or power-related answers to fight fundamentalism. They carefully analyse the root causes and call for ethical responses through a value-oriented development, through respect by an active tolerance which is more than "everything goes", by a holistic globalization which is much more than economic growth and open markets and by new concepts of the public role of religions. The book shows the commitment of Globethics.net to strengthen global common values while at the same time respecting the context and diversity of values.
