From Continuity to Sustainability

From Continuity to SustainabilityThis book describes İzel Levi Coşkun’s sustainability journey and his experiences with an authentic voice that holds out hope for those of us who care about the planet’s future. “When we, as humanity, have to give an accounting of the life we are living, how many trees, how many lives ignored and neglected will we have to show for it, and how many grave mistakes will we have committed that simply can’t be undone. We have permitted these mistakes to become part of our lifestyles and to guide us, even to control us, as if they were our indispensable truths, so that the balance of the scales of life have been disrupted in a way that endangers both humanity and the entire planet. Right now, it is within our power to restore this balance while there is still a chance. It's time to try to begin the transformation by becoming aware and acknowledging these facts. There is no time to lose”.
