Introducatio SD for enginers

  1. 1. www.upc.edu How is the world today?
  2. 2. www.upc.edu What the hell are we talking about?  What is sustainability? What is Sustainable development?  ????
  3. 3. www.upc.edu What the hell are we talking about? FOR ALL FOR EVERwww.happyplanetindex.org
  4. 4. www.upc.edu Concepts  Carrying capacity  In ecology: carrying capacity in the maximum number of any species that a habitat can support along the time  What happens when the carrying capacity is overcome?  As humans which is our habitat?  Which is our carrying capacity as humans in our habitat? • It depends on: – The humans “needs” to live. – The Tech used to fulfill those “needs” in terms of resources/waste/pollution – Our social organization and its resilience.
  5. 5. www.upc.edu Concepts  Ecological footprint  Redefines carrying capacity as the surface of productive earth and water needed to maintain a population at a certain standard of living. Units: gha.
  6. 6. www.upc.edu Concepts  IPAT equation I=PAT  I – Impact to environment  P – Population  A – Affluence: products/services consumed per person (sufficiency)  T – Impact to environment for unit of product/service. (Tech efficiency + effectiveness)
  7. 7. www.upc.edu Population Font: Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat (2007).
  8. 8. www.upc.edu Population World population 1950-2050 Font: Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat (2007).
  9. 9. www.upc.edu Població  Distribució de la població per edats i per regions: projecció mitjana. Font: Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat (2007).
  10. 10. www.upc.edu Affluence  Resum Font: Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat (2007).
  11. 11. www.upc.edu Concepts  IPAT exercice. I=PAT  I – Impact to environment in 2050 = 50% of current situation  P – Population  A – Affluence: products/services consumed per person •  2% annual in “developed” countries (20% population) • Developing countries (80% population) the same development as “developed” by 2050.  T – Impact to environment for unit of product/service. • ??????? – 2 => 50% – 3 => 66% – 4 => 75%
  12. 12. What does the EF measure?www.upc.edu  Consumption of food and materials: in relation to the surface of earth and seas biologically productive needed to produce that natural resources.  Consumption of energy: on the basis of the surface necessary to absorb the correlatives emissions of CO2. • The measuring is done in “units of surface”. A surface’s unit is equivalent to an hectare of world productivity average.

  24. 24. www.upc.edu The human development index Human development index (HDI) looks beyond GDP to a broader definition of wellbeing. The HDI provides a composite measure of three dimensions of human development: • living a long and healthy life (measured by life expectancy), • being educated (measured by adult literacy and enrolment at the primary, secondary and tertiary level) and • having a decent standard of living (measured by purchasing power parity, income). The index is not in any sense a comprehensive measure of human development. It does not, for example, include important indicators such as respect for human rights, democracy and inequality. What it does provide is a broadened prism for viewing human progress and the complex relationship between income and well- being.

  34. 34. The current world viewwww.upc.edu - relative importance? Economy laws are ‘inevitable’ - market laws Environment Environment is used to fulfill (‘technology the demands of the Economy can fix it’) laws. (Resources, waste and pollution absorption) Economy (‘inevitable laws’) Society adapts to the inevitable economy laws: As much money as sooner as Society possible.

  36. 36. Engineers provide the interfaces...www.upc.edu Environmental laws are ‘inevitable’ - laws of nature. Products Environment nurtures, supports and makes possible…. Society - which has a Economy mixture of instinctive and learned/cultural laws - invented! Society has invented, to serve society’s purposes…. Society Environment Economy - whose rules and practices are totally ‘invented’Infrastructure - ‘inevitable’ by societySO: why do so many regard Economic laws as ‘inevitable’ (globalisation, etc); butEnvironmental laws, and limits, as manipulable?
