Local government implementation of Agenda 21
Global change, as the Council has repeatedly emphasized in its Annual Reports, is ultimately a behavioral problem, and the crisis of the environment is a crisis of society. Behavior relevant to global change occurs at various levels of society, from the individual through the family, the place of work and the local community to national and international organizations. People always act in local contexts that are spatially and temporally specific, and are influenced by these in turn. This applies to the causes of global change problems, as well as eradication of or adaptation to them. It is therefore essential to integrate measures for sustainable development into local sociocultural contexts and to shape them according to the specific problems and target groups concerned.
