The term ‘sustainable development’ was first defined during the Brundtland Convention in 1980ies.
“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Our world has been growing fast for the last decades and this development has been driven without considering the future impact. We can already measure the damages caused by this unsustainable development and anticipate its severe consequences if things do not change quickly.
The sustainable development mainly focuses on ecology and limiting the current climate change. But the focus of sustainable development is wider than just environmental matters: the concept applies to other domains such as economy, culture or politics.
It is all about changing our way of doing things in order to build a respectful and viable world. Sustainable development is not only about preserving our environment, the fauna and the flora, but also about modifying people’s mind to change their habits. It is about sourcing, producing and distributing in the right way in order to preserve the natural resources but also about consuming and using responsibly.
If sustainable development is focused on the future, it doesn’t mean that we loose out now. The sustainable approach can be effective on the short-term as well.
