Title

Voluntary organizations and the challenge of sustainable development

Author

Korten, David C.

Description

The authors propose that there are two responses to the global social and environmental crisis: the conventional growth-centered development vision promoted by government organizations, and a people-centered development vision, promoted by voluntary organizations. They question that solutions based on the conventional vision are likely to be effective, and argue that voluntary organizations have an advantage over governmental organizations as catalysts of the type of institutional and values change required to solve the global crisis.
