Heritage, Values and Nature Conservation


Term Paper, 2010

Abstract or Introduction

This paper deals with the values, perspectives and objectives in nature conservation and recreation. In 1987, the Brundtland Commission published the ground-breaking report titled: "Our common future". The paradigm was shifted to sustainability, confronting the humanity with its responsibility to establish a development that 'meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs'.

There is hardly any realm untouched by the notion of sustainable development, be it of cultural, environmental, social or political nature. Simplistically it can be stated that we aim at passing on our legacy with minimal losses. This goal was not generated in 1987, but rather is an inherited desire to every human being. There is consensus that cultural and biological diversity is a great part of this heritage, and that globalization and consequent homogenization is jeopardizing it.
