Only One Goal: Economic Growth. How Can Environmentalism Survive in the 21st Century?

Author(s):Giovanni Capulli

ABSTRACT
This paper is aimed to explore environmentalism in the 21st century: this broad philosophy has to overcome its limits in order to survive in a society where there seems to be only one goal, the economic growth. In the first part of the essay, I want to analyze the present condition as a result of a weak environmental consciousness. In the second part of the essay, I want to describe and compare two mainstreams of present environmentalism: de-growth theory and sustainable development.
