The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

Sustainability put into practice could take many different forms, effecting both the individual and the larger community. There are ecovillages and sustainable cities created just for the purpose of minimizing the use of important resources. There are also techniques, such as sustainable architecture, which help promote this ideal.

The combination of both approaches allows recognizing the extent of the damage, the speed of their changes, and the resilience and recovery of ecosystems, too. Read less
