Abstract

Transition towards sustainability will be a social learning process that will teach us, progressively, through mistakes and contradictions – like every other learning process – how to live better, consuming (a lot) less and how to recreate the physical and social ambient we live in. This phrase summarises effectively all that has been said in the previous chapters. In particular, this sentence claims that in order to avoid a social catastrophe, this transition has to be effectuated by positive choices, and the results of the transition have to be perceived as improvements in living conditions.
