Quick Overview

Globalisation and technological progress have ushered us into a new era of development. Never before has the promise of the 'Good Life' in a hedonistic, consumerist utopia, been within reach for so may. Yet, a significant portion of humanity is still unable to meet their basic needs. These trends are unsustainable, and beg the question: Where are we heading us as a global community ... and at what cost?

In 2005, M Nadarajah embarked on a journey into the heart of Asia t research culturally imbedded notions of sustainable development. He met with the indigenous communities of Henanga, Ainu, Lanna, Karen, Kankanaey, Balinese and several others. These cultures reside far from the problems of mainstream development, both physically and spirtually. Their lifestyles incorporate philosophies of interconnectedness; of sacredness of naturel; of the continuity of past, present and future.
