Details

Sustainable development is all about integrating all of our present day needs with the needs of society, the environment and global citizenship, in a way that does not compromise future generations. Sustainable development also promotes equality, independence, collaboration and empowerment. By maintaining all of our resources and protecting nature so that future generations can also benefit, we encourage a sustainable society and for the environment to grow.

Sustainable development has one main objective, which is to create balance between our social, environmental and economic needs, whilst maintaining equality and justice. The way in which we have chosen to live our lives in the recent past has been responsible for the damage that has been caused to the environment. We are polluting the Earth and consuming far more resources than we produce and are therefore damaging the development of future generations. This Book has been prepared in order to provide details regarding Sustainable Development and what is behind Sustainability. (Imprint: Nova)
