Knowledge and Sustainable Development


  • Cosma Sorinel

    () („Ovidius” University of Constana, Faculty of Economic Sciences,)


Sustainability is like a visionary road map to guide our actions, as individuals, and in relation to the institutional structures with which we have contact. Over the past few decades, it has been widely recognized that sustainability cannot be reached without a strong science base, which is synonymous with knowledge. This paper will look into different aspects of the relationship between knowledge and sustainability such as how to organize the available knowledge on sustainable development, who has access to the available scientific knowledge for sustainable development, how to manage indigenous knowledge, what to make of knowledge systems, or how to cope with knowledge divide.
