This volume explores intergenerational practices and their impact on social sustainability. It links sustainability concepts from various contexts with intergenerational related dimensions and applies them to programmatic efforts to address different social problems such as underperforming educational and work-related systems, failing support systems for dependent or vulnerable populations and community renewal and regeneration efforts. To this end the core argument is to present issues related to age, aging, and generations not only as challenges or even problems but as sources for the development of innovative responses to some tenacious societal issues and for paving pathways to facilitate improved quality of live for all generations.

For societies to be sustainable all generations must coexist at any given time and across time (non-contemporary generations). Hence, the ultimate vision presented here is one of a sustainable intergenerational way of life as both a conceptual tool and as a call for action. Intergenerational pathways are introduced as compelling and effective strategies for improving health and well-being across the lifespan, strengthening families, improving under-performing educational and work-related systems, and helping to build more cohesive, caring communities.

Reviewing some of the historical factors and developments influencing intergenerational studies, as well as presenting regional case studies and comparative research of various models, approaches and applications, this book intends to present successful international intergenerational models that may be applied to everyday multigenerational practices in institutions such as learning, education, family life, housing, healthcare, employment and community development.

The intergenerational programs and practices highlighted in this accessible resource for students, academics and practitioners set a positive tone and an empowering direction for how modern societies can navigate and find opportunity amidst challenging demographic and social changes.


Management Of Fungal Plant Pathogens

Microbes, including fungi, are always adapting to different environmental conditions and phytopathologists are continually faced with the management of new diseases and the resurgence of old ones. Amidst growing concerns about the environment and food security, the development of management strategies that minimize crop losses and promote sustainable agriculture is increasingly important.

Management of Fungal Plant Pathogens presents a review of research into pathogenic fungi in a diverse selection of economically important crops, including fruits and cereals. The establishment and management of fungal plant disease using conventional and ecofriendly methods is discussed with an emphasis on the use of microorganisms and biotechnology. Chapters also examine the role of microbes in growth promotion, bioprotectors and bioremediators and presents practical strategies for using microbes as well as botanicals in sustainable agriculture.


Society And Social Pathology

This book offers one of the most comprehensive studies of social pathology to date, following a cross-disciplinary and methodologically innovative approach. It is written for anyone concerned with understanding current social conditions, individual health, and how we might begin to collectively conceive of a more reconciled postcapitalist world.
Drawing reference from the most up-to-date studies, Smith crosses disciplinary boundaries from cognitive science and anthropology to critical theory, systems theory and psychology. Opening with an empirical account of numerous interlinked carises from mental health to the physiological effects of environmental pollution, Smith argues that mainstream sociological theories of pathology are deeply inadequate. Smith introduces an alternative critical conception of pathology that drills to the core of how and why society is deeply ailing. The book concludes with a detailed account of why a progressive and critical vision of social change requires a "holistic view" of individual and societal transformation. Such a view is grounded in the awareness that a sustainable transition to postcapitalism is ultimately a many-sided (social, individual, and structural) healing process.

Currently the notion of "sustainability" is used in an inflationary manner. Therefore the authors start with a definition which is stable to serve as an anchor for further research as well as for discussions among scientists, managers and politicians, ideally across different disciplines. The character of this book is purely conceptual. The argumentation is based on comparison of new and demanding requisites with existing models (process and network architectures in the field of logistics). Formerly neglected impacts on the environment will be included. Main features of a new approach will be developed which are capable to avoid these impacts and to align logistics with the requirements of sustainability. In order to make logistics sustainable large parts will have to be reinvented. The focus needs to be on decoupling transportation activities from economic growth rates.
