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."

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.

1.4 Sustainability and sustainable development
Sustainability is the use and management of resources that allows for regeneration. It is the use of our natural capital in a managed, smart way that does not impact future generations. Ecosystems can provide goods and services, through natural capital, that are beneficial to humans. Sustainable development meets the needs to the present without harming the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

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

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 is SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS? What does SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS mean? SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS meaning - SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS definition - SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. 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.

Tales of Trash: 5 Principles for Inclusive Recycling
The stories of Sabitri, Carlos and Mustafa, working in informal recycling sector in India, Peru and Ghana, and how the Sustainable Recycling Initiative changes their lives. And we all can keep enjoying our electric and electronical devices. 1. The world population is growing rapidly. So is the need for electrical and electronic goods. These devices contain all kinds of raw materials, among others valuable metals. Industries get these from metal mines, but more and more they use secondary – recycled – materials. Especially in emerging economies metal recycling has become an important business. A large informal sector has emerged, that employs many workers. They do not always receive proper education nor proper training and protection. 2. This is Sabitri. She disassembles cellphones in Dharavi, India, without protection. It is the only way to help her family. She is pushed to harm the natural environment and her own health! Carlos wanders through the streets of Lima, Peru, in the middle of the night. He illegally collects waste and is seen as a social outcast. Mustafa is only 11 years old. He works at a scrap metal yard near Accra in Ghana. He can’t go to school and it seems as he will never be able to escape the hazardous work-environment. 3. International experts and stakeholders now have decided to tackle these problems! They were brought together by the World Resources Forum, with support from the Swiss Government. They have created the Sustainable Recycling Industries Roundtable and developed the Guidance Principles for the Sustainable Management of Secondary Metals – an ISO process. 4. The five Guidance Principles for improving recycling practices are: (1) Enabling safe, healthy and equitable working conditions, (2) Building local community relations and resilience, (3) Conserving and protecting the environment and natural resources, (4) Improving recovery of secondary metals, and (5) Implementing a sustainable management approach. 5. The Guidance Principles are important because they can also ensure a credible traceability of the recovered metals. Manufacturers of products that contain recycled metals all over the world need solid guarantees that these are sustainably produced. This is good for the economy, the environment and the people. Waste management practices will be improved and living conditions of poor communities will become better. 6. The Guidance Principles offer a gradual approach for implementing the several steps. For example, Sabitri’s boss was given one year – a reasonable period – to identify occupational health and safety risks and to promote improvements. Now he provides the required equipment and facilities to enable safe and healthy working conditions. After having registered as formal collector, Carlos no longer has to roam the streets at night. He will be a proud and respected worker, with a uniform and a future. After joining a program for working children Mustafa can go back to school. He now wants to learn more and help to build up his country. 7. If everybody uses the Guidance Principles then we can all continue enjoying our devices knowing that we are creating a success story. Do you want to be part of this story? You are most welcome to contact us, to learn more about the Guidance Principles and join the Sustainable Recycling Initiative.

Sustainable forestry and woodland management practices - sustainable agroforestry in uk agriculture
The sustainable forestry initiative and sustainable forest management as part of sustainable agriculture and woodland management system and end the current system of deforestation. Sustainable forestry is desirable for the environment not least because wood is captured carbon but sustainable timber production cannot compete with the deforestation of natural woodland. Please share, like and comment to support sustainable forestry. #SustainableForestry NOW! Sustainable forest management is the management of forests according to the principles of sustainable development. Sustainable forest management has to keep the balance between three main pillars: ecological, economic and socio-cultural. Successfully achieving sustainable forest management will provide integrated benefits to all, ranging from safeguarding local livelihoods to protecting the biodiversity and ecosystems provided by forests, reducing rural poverty and mitigating some of the effects of climate change. The "Forest Principles" adopted at The United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 captured the general international understanding of sustainable forest management at that time. A number of sets of criteria and indicators have since been developed to evaluate the achievement of SFM at the global, regional, country and management unit level. These were all attempts to codify and provide for independent assessment of the degree to which the broader objectives of sustainable forest management are being achieved in practice. In 2007, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Non-Legally Binding Instrument on All Types of Forests. The instrument was the first of its kind, and reflected the strong international commitment to promote implementation of sustainable forest management through a new approach that brings all stakeholders together. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sustainable_forest_management Support the creation of more videos like this: https://www.patreon.com/sustainablehuman This video was created as a gift to humanity by Chris and Dawn Agnos Sign up to watch more videos created by us: http://sustainablehuman.com/videos/ Official Landing Page: Coming Soon Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/SustainableMan/ You are welcome to download, repost, and share any video on this channel freely on your website or in your presentations as long as you link back to the official landing page (or to our Facebook page if uploading the video to Facebook).
