Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the
present without compromising the ability of future

Sustainable future:

My vision of a sustainable
future is when citizen are more concerned about the environment. It will only
happen when different groups from industries, environment, schools, business,
governments and the public come together and work towards a common vision of
sustainability for our communities and balancing the needs of human and natural
systems. When I think of a sustainable future, I think of my successors and I
hope that they’ll live in a world where clean water and clean air have not
become a scarcity. If sustainability means correcting some of the mistakes of
the past and if there is a real commitment to do so, I’d like to think it’s
possible that a cleaner future awaits us.
