What is Sustainability? --------------------SEE MORE BELOW-------------------Sustainability is a process. "A dynamic process which enables all people to realize their potential and to improve their quality of life in ways that simultaneously protect and enhance the Earth's life support systems."
- Forum for the Future ---"Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable--to ensure that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
World Commission on Environment and Development,
Brundtland Commission, "Our Common Future"
"Sustainability: A state of dynamic equilibrium achieved by taking responsibility for balancing long term economic, environmental and social health --for ourselves, our communities, and our world.
Sustainability brings to light the connections between natural and human communities. It implies evolving our local and global civilization in a manner that makes sense socially, ecologically and economically, and treating our world as if we intend to stay."
- Pop Sustainability
Sustainability is related to the quality of life in a community -- whether the economic, social and environmental systems that make up the community, business, or household are providing a healthy, productive, meaningful life for all, both present and future.
