ALI Conference on Sustainability_

more than a buzzword from politics and economy?

Hans Carl von Carlowitz, mining officer in Freiberg (Saxony), center  of the ore-rich Erzgebirge region, published the first comprehensive  treatise about sustainable yield forestry. His book « Sylvicultura  oeconomica (1713) was a European breakthough in his days. In summary  it says that on a long-term, one cannot cut more timber than is  managed by sowing, growing and planting of seedlings. Thus Hans Carl  von Carlowitz is considered to be the founder of the nowadays widespread concept of « sustainability ». The United Nations declared 2010 to be the International Year of Biodiversity. In this context, the concept of sustainability is more up-to-date than ever before.
