Abstract [en]

This article examines the current perspective of sustainability and explores its relation to occupation. An elaborated version of the concept of ecopation, originally developed in 2002, which melds together eco-ethics and knowledge about occupation, is used as a tool to address sustainability issues in relation to future occupations for well-being. The concept of glocalisation is introduced as a means by which to capture the interconnectedness of personal, local and global perspectives. A core proposition in the article is that doing, if guided by ecopation, could start promoting well-being on individual and population levels if it takes into account the personal as well as the local and global contexts. Current planetary economic and ecological crises and the increasing call for humane global solutions are discussed in relation to how ecopation and a deepened knowledge of the human as an occupational being, might contribute to such solutions. © 2013 The Journal of Occupational Science Incorporated.
