Sustainability means that we, of this generation, must practice stewardship of the earth and its resources so that the present needs of humanity are met without jeopardizing the needs of future generations. As generic as this definition may sound, it’s actually packed with implications that provoke debate and brings about policy changes.

The task before us is how to make our world more sustainable, especially as we face the challenge of climate change and begin to accept that our human systems and participation have in large part caused the problem.
