This is one of the most popular search questions about sustainability on the Web.
There is no one definition although a popular one cited is the Brundtland Commission of the United Nations of March 20, 1987: “sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” The soul of sustainability is our interconnectedness of Mother Earth and her children through to the next seven generations.
