Two views on sustainability – industry and ecology
There are two basic views on sustainability. As humans, we clearly need to protect the environment more for ourselves, our descendants, but also for other animal and plant species. On the other hand, we must consider industrial, energy, economic or logistical requirements, on the basis of which natural resources are used. Can these interests be balanced and are they actually in conflict? Two prominent personalities will offer us their views in several structured blocks – Petr Jonák, who will be representing Czech industry on the behalf of the Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic, and Vojtěch Kotecký, a naturalist, environmentalist and the former program director of the Friends of the Earth Czech Republic.
