Abstract

My task is to present some ideas for socially and environmentally appropriate services which will provide meaningful work for those employed in them. I am endeavouring to show the links between three challenges: the squandering of the earth's resources; the effects of technology on employment and escalation of alienation and anomie in our daily relationships. In presenting these ideas I am drawing from my experience of involvement in different types of innovative community-based services during the past forty years.
