We are facing the failure of the sustainable development model from an environmental, social, economic and individual perspective. A possible new model is that of sustainability: The sustainability revolution. Portrait of a paradigm shift is the essay of Andras Edwards (2005) which summarizes the paradigmatic change needed to achieve sustainability.
The revolution requires new cultures, new social organizations, new economic models, etc.
The first step required is a shift in our way of thinking: the shift of paradigm in fact is a cultural matter: therefore, the cultural sector is deeply involved in it.
All cultural institutions are required to co-operate to the realization of a change towards sustainability, building new knowledge, awareness, responsibility and new ways of thinking.
