Sustainable development is a pattern of resources that aim to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met, not only in the present but also for generations to come. Sustainable development ties together concern for the carrying capacity of natural systems with the social challenges facing humanity.
Sustainable development is an eclectic concept, as a wide range of view fall under the same umbrella.
People concerned about sustainable development suggest that meeting the needs of the future depends on how well we balance social, economic and environmental objectives when making decisions today. Most people would like to live in a sustainable community, but they cannot afford to do so because current business models encourage activities that do not take into account future problems. Sustainable development creates long term economic stability, but does not create short-term profits , its a long term plan. Governments, businesses and consumers all need to change their habits for sustainable development to grow. By co-operating in this way, we can all look forward to a green future !!
