Abstract

Sustainable development as a modern Utopia. Utopia has the double meaning of a desirable society and an unattainable ideal. We explore different versions of utopia that appeared in the literature over time and suggest that sustainable development can be considered as a modern utopia. The practical implications of this perspective are similar to those drawn in earlier cases: it is more important to take steps in the desired direction than to dwell in despair on the unattainability of it all.
