The most frequently quoted definition of sustainability is from Our Common Future, also known as the Brundtland Report: “Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Sustainability is making choices here and today which will enable a (bearable) world to live in for the future generations. Sustainable development comprises of three core areas: economic development, social development, and environmental protection.
Social development is to do with welfare, ending poverty and hunger, equal opportunity, international solidarity, simply better standards of well being. Economic development concerns growth and efficiency, production, and consumption. All this must happen while fighting climate change, limiting the consumption of resources and materials and preserving natural and cultural landscapes.
