Thank you, Gil- for an overview of these trends.
I would like to include an international trend, and as you may surely have picked-up too..
A couple of weeks ago, the UN, UN Foundation and panels preparing for Rio+20 (2) decided to transform the gathering from a discussion on global agreement on climate change and sustainability towards a discussion on a global agreement on sustainable development, and thus on the sustainability of our economies.
Sustainable development further much more holistically and pragmatically defined- including considerations for the availability and use of food-water-energy and the related effects on people, planet and profit.
So expect in year 2012 a significant shift in the sutainability dialogue- and a much more focussed debate on rich-and-poor, BRICS vs. US (/OECD), on money and market systems, the distribution of wealth and the application and use of resources- worldwide.
I belief the BRICS country will lead this new (international) approach, starting in Rio.
