What is Sustainability?

About This Collection

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.

Spreading Sustainability: Denmark

http://climaterealityproject.org - We know the climate crisis and our dependency on fossil fuel has created a very real threat to public health, but there are individuals, businesses, and entire communities around the globe who are taking action to solve this crisis and create a healthier future for all of us.

For example, back in 1998 the danish government set out to prove that its goal of cutting carbon emissions by 21 percent was not only possible but practical. What happened over the next 20 years is a remarkable story of a community coming together and creating far reaching change.
