What is sustainability?
Sustainability is the study of how systems function in nature, how they remain diverse, but produce what is needed for an ecology to remain in balance. It is how natural systems endure and survive.
However, human civilisation has taken resources to sustain our way of life, which can damage the environment and affect its chances of survival on its own.
The UN World Commission on Environment and Development defines sustainability as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
