Islands are excellent case studies for the concept of sustainability, and to show the value of systems thinking. Several present island-societies, amongst them those on Baltic Sea or European islands, offer the opportunity to develop a significant change in how sustainability is to be understood in a broader as well as in a deeper sense. In this discussion, we concentrate on geographical islands, although it should be borne in mind that there are instances where communities form an island bounded by factors other than geography such as common interest, socio-economic class, opportunity etc.
