THE DEFINITION OF SUSTAINABILITY

The Concept of Sustainability recognizes increasing environmental destruction and resource depletion, and proposes that we act during our own time in ways that will permit future generations to live at least as well as we do and preserve a functioning Earth Systems with abundant natural habitats and biological diversity. Sustainability traverses the sciences, politics, economics, culture, arts, humanities, and ethics, and recognizes the pursuit of economic prosperity and social equity through the development of practices, technologies, ideas, or values that will increase the resilience and economic empowerment of communities and their surrounding regions, and permit non-humans and ecosystems to thrive.”
