Sustainability Development

Sustainable Development

Today, the earth's resources are being used at a faster rate than ever before. And that is happening despite the fact that often those resources are finite. We only have this one world. We need to keep it inhabitable for everyone for a long time to come. The environment is the primary limiting factor in the concept of sustainability - not only at national but also at international level.

"I firmly believe that environmental action leads to greater social justice and that the two are inextricably linked."
