What does SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT mean? SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT meaning - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT definition - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Sustainable development is a process for meeting human development goals while sustaining the ability of natural systems to continue to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services upon which the economy and society depends. While the modern concept of sustainable development is derived most strongly from the 1987 Brundtland Report, it is rooted in earlier ideas about sustainable forest management and twentieth century environmental concerns. As the concept developed, it has shifted to focus more on economic development, social development and environmental protection. Sustainable development is the organizing principle for sustaining finite resources necessary to provide for the needs of future generations of life on the planet. It is a process that envisions a desirable future state for human societies in which living conditions and resource-use continue to meet human needs without undermining the "integrity, stability and beauty" of natural biotic systems. Sustainability can be defined as the practice of maintaining processes of productivity indefinitely—natural or human made—by replacing resources used with resources of equal or greater value without degrading or endangering natural biotic systems. Sustainable development ties together concern for the carrying capacity of natural systems with the social, political, and economic challenges faced by humanity. Sustainability science is the study of the concepts of sustainable development and environmental science. There is an additional focus on the present generations' responsibility to regenerate, maintain and improve planetary resources for use by future generations. Sustainable development has its roots in ideas about sustainable forest management which were developed in Europe during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In response to a growing awareness of the depletion of timber resources in England, John Evelyn argued that "sowing and planting of trees had to be regarded as a national duty of every landowner, in order to stop the destructive over-exploitation of natural resources" in his 1662 essay Sylva. In 1713 Hans Carl von Carlowitz, a senior mining administrator in the service of Elector Frederick Augustus I of Saxony published Sylvicultura oeconomica, a 400-page work on forestry. Building upon the ideas of Evelyn and French minister Jean-Baptiste Colbert, von Carlowitz developed the concept of managing forests for sustained yield. His work influenced others, including Alexander von Humboldt and Georg Ludwig Hartig, eventually leading to the development of a science of forestry. This in turn influenced people like Gifford Pinchot, first head of the US Forest Service, whose approach to forest management was driven by the idea of wise use of resources, and Aldo Leopold whose land ethic was influential in the development of the environmental movement in the 1960s. Following the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring in 1962, the developing environmental movement drew attention to the relationship between economic growth and development and environmental degradation. Kenneth E. Boulding in his influential 1966 essay The Economics of the Coming Spaceship Earth identified the need for the economic system to fit itself to the ecological system with its limited pools of resources. One of the first uses of the term sustainable in the contemporary sense was by the Club of Rome in 1972 in its classic report on the Limits to Growth, written by a group of scientists led by Dennis and Donella Meadows of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Describing the desirable "state of global equilibrium", the authors wrote: "We are searching for a model output that represents a world system that is sustainable without sudden and uncontrolled collapse and capable of satisfying the basic material requirements of all of its people."

What is Sustainable Development and Why is it Important? | Waterpedia #SDGsSaturday
Do you have time for a few quick questions? What is Sustainable Development and Why is it Important? Waterpedia supports the Sustainable Development Goals. But we need to cooperate to achieve the 2030 agenda for sustainable development and we need you to be on board. Are you with us? A video from Waterpedia on #SDGsSaturday. Sustainable development is the development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. The goal of which is to achieve balance/harmony between environmental sustainability, economic sustainability, and socio-political sustainability. Environmentally sustainable economic growth refers to economic development that meets the needs of all without leaving future generations with fewer natural resources than those we enjoy today. The essence of this form of development is a stable relationship between human activities and the natural world, which does not diminish the prospects for future generations to enjoy a quality of life at least as good as our own. The idea of environmentally sustainable economic growth is not new. Many cultures over the course of human history have recognized the need for harmony between the environment, society, and economy. The ‘environmentally sustainable economic growth’ is the synonym to the prevalent concept of ‘Sustainable Development’.

Sustainable development |  Biology for all | FuseSchool
Like all living organisms, humans need resources to live. We need food, clean water and a shelter to live in. A few thousand years ago, this is all we would have wanted - a full stomach and a warm, dry home. But, as the human race has developed we now have a need for other, more luxury items - maybe a bicycle or car to get us from a to b, electricity, even the internet. And all these things require resources, lots and lots of resources such as fossil fuels and metals. Many of these resources are limited - once all the fossil fuels have been extracted from the Earth and burned to provide us with fuels and electricity, there will be none left. How will future generations of humans cope without the things we take for granted? And that’s before we even consider the effect the burning of fossil fuels is having on our planet and the climate… future generations will also have to deal with the effects of that too. Sustainable development involves making sure that there will be resources left for future generations. One way is to use renewable resources, such as solar energy, wind and biogas, to generate electricity rather than fossil fuels.Another example is using quick growing trees, like pine, as a source of wood. These trees can be cut down and replanted, providing an ever-ready supply. This is more sustainable than using slow growing trees like oak, which take hundreds of years to reach maturity. Recycling plastics, metals and paper means that fewer resources need to be extracted from the earth, as we can reuse the already extracted products, meaning more resources for future generations. As the human population grows, so does the demand for food. There is limited farmland, soil fertility, water and fish-stocks. So we should also be using sustainable ways of growing, catching and farming food. We remove more than 77 billion kilograms of fish from the oceans each year! Unsurprisingly, the number of some species of fish in the wild are declining because of overfishing: we’re taking fish from the sea faster than populations can reproduce. Some species of fish are endangered because of this, and might go extinct if their populations continue to fall. There are several initiatives that have been introduced to help conserve fish populations and allow us to enjoy eating fish now and in the future. Fishing quotas are strict numbers of fish that limit the amount of fish that people can catch. This reduces the amount of fish being taken from the sea. The holes on fishing nets have to be large enough to let the smaller, younger fish escape. This then gives them the chance to reproduce, and help maintain the population. Another solution is fish farms. Eating farmed fish reduces the number of fish being caught from the wild. It is important to realise that these initiatives have an impact on the people who rely on fishing for their income. Fishing quotas have helped to increase fish populations, but there has to be a balance between sustainable development for future generations and making sure that people today are also provided for. So, in this video we have covered what sustainable development is and some examples including how to solve the problem of overfishing.

What does SUSTAINABLE TOURISM mean? SUSTAINABLE TOURISM meaning - SUSTAINABLE TOURISM definition - SUSTAINABLE TOURISM explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Sustainable tourism is the concept of visiting a place as a tourist and trying to make only a positive impact on the environment, society and economy. Tourism can involve primary transportation to the general location, local transportation, accommodations, entertainment, recreation, nourishment and shopping. It can be related to travel for leisure, business and what is called VFR (visiting friends and relatives). There is now broad consensus that tourism development should be sustainable; however, the question of how to achieve this remains an object of debate. Without travel there is no tourism, so the concept of sustainable tourism is tightly linked to a concept of sustainable mobility. Two relevant considerations are tourism's reliance on fossil fuels and tourism's effect on climate change. 72 percent of tourism's CO2 emissions come from transportation, 24 percent from accommodations, and 4 percent from local activities. Aviation accounts for 55% of those transportation CO2 emissions (or 40% of tourism's total). However, when considering the impact of all greenhouse gas emissions from tourism and that aviation emissions are made at high altitude where their effect on climate is amplified, aviation alone accounts for 75% of tourism's climate impact. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) considers an annual increase in aviation fuel efficiency of 2 percent per year through 2050 to be realistic. However, both Airbus and Boeing expect the passenger-kilometers of air transport to increase by about 5 percent yearly through at least 2020, overwhelming any efficiency gains. By 2050, with other economic sectors having greatly reduced their CO2 emissions, tourism is likely to be generating 40 percent of global carbon emissions. The main cause is an increase in the average distance travelled by tourists, which for many years has been increasing at a faster rate than the number of trips taken. "Sustainable transportation is now established as the critical issue confronting a global tourism industry that is palpably unsustainable, and aviation lies at the heart of this issue (Gossling et al., 2010)."

What does SUSTAINABLE ENERGY mean? SUSTAINABLE ENERGY meaning - SUSTAINABLE ENERGY definition - SUSTAINABLE ENERGY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Sustainable energy is energy that is consumed at insignificant rates compared to its supply and with manageable collateral effects, especially environmental effects. Another common definition of sustainable energy is an energy system that serves the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. The organizing principle for sustainability is sustainable development, which includes the four interconnected domains: ecology, economics, politics and culture. Sustainability science is the study of sustainable development and environmental science. Technologies that promote sustainable energy include renewable energy sources, such as hydroelectricity, solar energy, wind energy, wave power, geothermal energy, bioenergy, tidal power and also technologies designed to improve energy efficiency. Costs have fallen dramatically in recent years, and continue to fall. Most of these technologies are either economically competitive or close to being so. Increasingly, effective government policies support investor confidence and these markets are expanding. Considerable progress is being made in the energy transition from fossil fuels to ecologically sustainable systems, to the point where many studies support 100% renewable energy. Energy efficiency and renewable energy are said to be the twin pillars of sustainable energy. Some ways in which sustainable energy has been defined are: 1. "Effectively, the provision of energy such that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. ...Sustainable Energy has two key components: renewable energy and energy efficiency." – Renewable Energy and Efficiency Partnership (British) 2. "Dynamic harmony between equitable availability of energy-intensive goods and services to all people and the preservation of the earth for future generations." And, "The solution will lie in finding sustainable energy sources and more efficient means of converting and utilizing energy." – Sustainable Energy by J. W. Tester, et al., from MIT Press. 3. "Any energy generation, efficiency and conservation source where: Resources are available to enable massive scaling to become a significant portion of energy generation, long term, preferably 100 years.." – Invest, a green technology non-profit organization. 4. "Energy which is replenishable within a human lifetime and causes no long-term damage to the environment." – Jamaica Sustainable Development Network This sets sustainable energy apart from other renewable energy terminology such as alternative energy by focusing on the ability of an energy source to continue providing energy. Sustainable energy can produce some pollution of the environment, as long as it is not sufficient to prohibit heavy use of the source for an indefinite amount of time. Sustainable energy is also distinct from low-carbon energy, which is sustainable only in the sense that it does not add to the CO2 in the atmosphere. Green Energy is energy that can be extracted, generated, and/or consumed without any significant negative impact to the environment. The planet has a natural capability to recover which means pollution that does not go beyond that capability can still be termed green. Green power is a subset of renewable energy and represents those renewable energy resources and technologies that provide the highest environmental benefit. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency defines green power as electricity produced from solar, wind, geothermal, biogas, biomass and low-impact small hydroelectric sources. Customers often buy green power for avoided environmental impacts and its greenhouse gas reduction benefits.

Sustainable business, or green business, is an enterprise that has minimal negative impact on the global or local environment, community, society, or economy—a business that strives to meet the triple bottom line. Often, sustainable businesses have progressive environmental and human rights policies. In general, business is described as green if it matches the following four criteria: 1. It incorporates principles of sustainability into each of its business decisions. 2. It supplies environmentally friendly products or services that replaces demand for nongreen products and/or services. 3. It is greener than traditional competition. 4. It has made an enduring commitment to environmental principles in its business operations. A sustainable business is any organization that participates in environmentally friendly or green activities to ensure that all processes, products, and manufacturing activities adequately address current environmental concerns while maintaining a profit. In other words, it is a business that “meets the needs of the present world without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet their own needs.” It is the process of assessing how to design products that will take advantage of the current environmental situation and how well a company’s products perform with renewable resources. The Brundtland Report emphasized that sustainability is a three-legged stool of people, planet, and profit. Sustainable businesses with the supply chain try to balance all three through the triple-bottom-line concept—using sustainable development and sustainable distribution to affect the environment, business growth, and the society. Everyone affects the sustainability of the marketplace and the planet in some way. Sustainable development within a business can create value for customers, investors, and the environment. A sustainable business must meet customer needs while, at the same time, treating the environment well. In order to be successful in such an approach, where stakeholder balancing and joint solutions is key, a structural approach is needed. One philosophy, that include many different tools and methods, is the concept of Sustainable Enterprise Excellence. Sustainability is often confused with corporate social responsibility (CSR), though the two are not the same. Bansal and DesJardine (2014) state that the notion of ‘time’ discriminates sustainability from CSR and other similar concepts. Whereas ethics, morality, and norms permeate CSR, sustainability only obliges businesses to make intertemporal trade-offs to safeguard intergenerational equity. Short-termism is the bane of sustainability. Green business has been seen as a possible mediator of economic-environmental relations, and if proliferated, would serve to diversify our economy, even if it has a negligible effect at lowering atmospheric CO2 levels. The definition of "green jobs" is ambiguous, but it is generally agreed that these jobs, the result of green business, should be linked to clean energy, and contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases. These corporations can be seen as generators of not only "green energy", but as producers of new "materialities" that are the product of the technologies these firms developed and deployed.

Sustainable community development: from what's wrong to what's strong | Cormac Russell | TEDxExeter
How can we help people to live a good life? Instead of trying to right what's wrong within a community Cormac argues we need to start with what's strong. We need to help people discover what gifts they have and to use those gifts to enrich those around them. -- At TEDxExeter 2016 our speakers encapsulated the idea of movement, that grappling with humanity’s toughest questions requires first a vision, a dream, and then action. Video Production Chromatrope (http://chromatrope.co.uk/) Production Manager Andy Robertson (http://www.youtube.com/familygamertv) Cormac Russell is Managing Director of Nurture Development, the leading Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) organisation in Europe, and faculty member of the ABCD Institute at Northwestern University, Illinois. He works with local communities, NGOs and governments on asset-based community development and other strengths-based approaches, in four continents. Cormac served on the UK Government’s Expert Reference Group on Community Organising and Communities First during its term in 2011-12. His book “Asset Based Community Development (ABCD): Looking Back to Look Forward” was published in 2015. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Sustainable Development 101
A short sustainable development (sustainability) video animation explaining what it is, how to define it and how to apply solutions to move towards it. Please see below for the video's script. For further information about how we can help you and your organisation unleash the opportunities of sustainable visit www.principledsustainability.com and www.simongoldsmith.com Twitter: simontgoldsmith Sustainability Slides Script: Slide 1 Hello, this short presentation explains key themes to help you understand Sustainable Development. During this presentation you will learn how it can benefit you, your organisation and how it can help protect our future. This video seeks to add to your basic sustainability knowledge and explains a great framework to help address it in ways that are attractive, positive and attainable. We hear the word sustainability frequently used, but often people don't accurately understand its meaning. The problem is if we don't properly understand its meaning then it will be difficult, if not impossible, to make decisions to attain it. So why is it important? Slide 2 OK, here we have three systems -- the economy, society and the environment. Often in decision-making we treat each of these as separate systems, however, if we look closer we realise that there are significant interrelationships and reliance's between each system and their long term success and health. Slide 3 We will begin with the economy which is dependent on society for its labour, markets and key social systems for it to function. Slide 4 Both the economy and society are dependent on the environment that provides them with the raw materials, food, clean air and water and many systems we rely upon. Increasingly these interrelationships are becoming visible as impacts, in terms of climate change, water scarcity, pollution, health issues and so on. As our planet is finite we need to recognise that our current 'business as usual' model will need to adapt to work within the environmental systems whilst ensuring we are not undermining fundamental human needs. Slide 5 Our growing population is consuming ever more goods and services produced by our businesses, in turn depleting resources whilst increasing pollution. At the same time we are undermining the capacity of the environment to provide the resources and natural systems upon which we ultimately depend. So our goal should be to ensure our economy and society can function effectively within scientifically defined boundaries, moving us towards becoming a sustainable society. Slide 6 Fortunately a clear set of 4 guiding principles have been developed, and are part of a peer reviewed, rigorously tested framework by the Swedish NGO The Natural Step. These 4 principles that help us define how to attain a vision of becoming a sustainable society enabling us to make decisions that will get us there. If you would like to read through these then pause the presentation now, otherwise we can continue. Slide 7 With these principles in mind we can set our vision to become a sustainable society. Using a strategic planning approach called 'backcasting' we know what our vision is and then consider our current reality, understanding the impacts and actions we make today. To be sustainable we have to plan to reduce and eliminate activities that are unsustainable according to the 4 principles. This won't happen overnight and have to be based on an ongoing ability to obtain a return on investment whilst providing a flexible platform that will take us in the direction of our vision. Slide 8 Sustainability is a positive strategic process and the sooner we act the easier the transition will be, maximising opportunities and meeting our own individual and collective needs illustrated on this frame. Please press pause if you need time to read this. By looking at sustainability strategically we can prepare for the future using a long term vision to align decision making whilst also generating short term benefits. Slide 9 I hope this short presentation has helped you better understand what sustainability is, how crucial it is and how it relates to you and your success. By applying a clear approach to help us strategically move towards it. For more information please contact us. www.principledsustainability.com

Energy Management and Sustainable Building Technology - Durham College
http://www.durhamcollege.ca/programs/energy-management-and-sustainable-building-technology With the cost of energy rapidly increasing there is a commitment to being part of the move to renewable energy sources. Some commercial buildings frequently use more energy in unoccupied times than occupied, a practice that can hardly be considered sustainable. This program offers the opportunity to learn how to integrate a variety of technologies to quantify energy efficiency and conservation within commercial and institutional buildings through the application of energy management, business principles and clean energy technologies. The Ontario Power Authority is projecting the creation of thousands of new jobs as part of the shift to green and renewable energy. This program will prepare you to meet this demand by teaching you the skills required to work in the fields of energy-use efficiency, energy sourcing and energy management within industrial, commercial and residential buildings. Students will be trained at the college's state-of-the-art and energy efficient Skilled Trades Centre in energy management and building systems technology including strategies, practices and techniques for generating, managing, optimizing, capturing, storing and distributing renewable and clean energy technologies. You will focus on: - Understanding the basics of building science - Utilizing instrumentation and other related technologies to monitor and control energy systems in commercial facilities - Analyzing technical problems related to energy systems - Making recommendations applying green technologies in order to repurpose buildings - Linking sustainability to the benefits of the company and linking financial benefits to sustainability and green strategy - Improving employee morale and health For more information, visit www.durhamcollege.ca or call 905.721.2000.
