What is Sustainability?

 

The most common definition of sustainability:
“…meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

- United Nations Brundtland Commission, 1987

 

A Native American perspective:
“What about the seventh generation? Where are you taking them? What will they have?... We say that the faces of coming generations are looking up from the earth. So when you put your feet down, you put them down very carefully - because there are generations coming one after the other. If you think in these terms, then you'll walk a lot more carefully, be more respectful of this earth.”

- Oren Lyons, Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Chief
