Andrew Revkin: Dot Earth

Andrew Revkin hosts the Dot Earth blog over at the New York Times and wrote a really interesting post about outdoor experiences and environmental values. He quoted Richard Louv's latest blog post, which was really insightful.

While struggling with the word sustainability, a friend of Richard Louv's came up with the word an alternative to the word sustainability: “‘Thriveability’ is much more powerful, and helps elevate the focus and actions on higher principles….With children, do we just want them to survive or do we want them to thrive — the answer becomes obvious when you focus on the right question.”
