Sustainability is the ability to meet the needs of today without damaging the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. That can relate to energy production, food security, water security, etc…
The balance of the environmental protection, economic development, and our social needs are important in achieving sustainability. More often than not, economic development is the primary focus of many nations and often have a number of negative environmental impacts that lead to unsustainable futures.
With climate change becoming such a prominent issue, environmental protection is becoming more and more prominent in government policy but it still doesn’t get the true recognition that is required. But just because the local and national governments don’t take the lead doesn’t mean that each of us can’t do our bit to build towards a more sustainable future. With increased knowledge and the motivation to make changes, the transition to a sustainable future can easily be achieved, which is what this site is all about!
