WHAT IS THAT OF SUSTAINABILITY?

When we talk about sustainability it is believed to help the planet we must change our habits and lifestyles, this is something that has long held us to take effective action in helping the environment, It is why the definition of sustainability should not be linked to changes in life, but rather to changes in how to do things everyday.

The current concept of sustainability first appeared in the Brundtland report in 1987 also called our common future, This paper prepared for United Nations warned for the first time about the negative environmental consequences of economic development and globalization trying to offer solutions to the problems arising from industrialization and population growth, decades later is to ensure sustainability present needs, without compromising future generations, how? without giving up any of the three essential pillars: Environmental protection, social development and economic growth.

Sustainability is to assume that nature and the environment are not an inexhaustible resource protection and rational use being necessary, Sustainability is seeking to promote social development cohesion between communities and cultures to achieve satisfactory levels of quality of life, health and education. Third is to promote sustainable economic growth that generates wealth equitably to all without harming the environment.

Currently many of the challenges that human beings face such as climate change or water scarcity can only be solved from a global perspective and promoting sustainable development, Now that you know what is sustainability remember act in the present thinking of the future.
