Donella (Dana) Meadows was an inspiring leader, scholar, writer, teacher, a Pew Scholar in Conservation and Environment, and a MacArthur Fellow, and was one of the most influential environmental thinkers of the twentieth century. After receiving a Ph.D. in biophysics from Harvard, she joined a team at MIT applying the relatively new tools of System Dynamics to global problems. While Donella Meadows researched and wrote about global problems, she herself also practiced local solutions, a living personification of Rene Dubos’ famous expression, “Think Globally, Act Locally.”

Donella’s ideas, insights, teachings, environmental leadership, and belief in the capacity of humans to create a sustainable world continue to inspire and motivate us today. 

Visit the Donella Meadows Project by the Academy for Systems Change to learn more about Dana’s life and work.

DONELLA MEADOW’S BOOKS

Dana wrote and co-authored several books, including the following: 

Twenty years after their influential book Limits to Growth was published to worldwide acclaim, the authors revise several scenarios of growth, concluding that the global industrial system has already overshot some of the Earth’s vital ecological limits.

Limits to Growth: The 30-Year Update is a warning that overshoot cannot be sustained without collapse. But there is reason to believe that humanity can still reverse some of its damage to Earth if it takes appropriate measures to reduce inefficiency and waste.

The Electronic Oracle investigates the practice and impact of systems analysis and computer modeling, particularly as applied to social policy. Case studies of nine models address issues of economic development, resources, and the environment.

$35.00

This book brings systems thinking out of the realm of computers and equations and into the tangible world, showing how to develop the systems-thinking skills that thought leaders across the globe consider critical for 21st-century life.
