Environmental risk versus impact on economic and society

The recent Global Risks Report once again highlights the high likelihood versus high impact of environmental risks occurring. In particular is the associated societal move towards this quadrant that is occurring from previous years. It could also now be argued that the economic impacts will begin to start showing as the effects of these occurrences start showing.

Where does the responsibility lie for mitigation of these risks? With willing messengers in the Scientific and Education Sectors the responsibility shifts to the local and international communities to action the required changes.

Or does it?

Are the messengers putting into practice the principles and theory of action on sustainability issues. Countless organizations in the learning sector run fantastic theoretical programs, but they should also do everything possible to turn this into experiential learning or pedagogy of place. In this manner they would demonstrate a removal of the disconnect between theory and practice. It would also demonstrate to political and governance strucutres that they also need to close out their hypocritical gaps.
