International conference on the social sciences and medicine. Peebles (GBR), 1992/09/14.
This paper seeks to identify some of the major threats to our fragile eco-system through human actions.
We have sought to highlight that since these threats to our composite ecological heritage are global in nature, our responses shall have to be at the global level.
We have tried to analyse a role the social scientists can exercise in response to these threats.
We have merely shown possible responses within their professional disciplines.
Can they play an activist's role?
The paper does not prescribe any push-button role while emphasizing role of social scientists in environmental education.
