As many of you already noticed I am all in for sustainability and it is a kind of passion. I love to interact with like-minded people, bloggers and organisations. One could think sustainability is a narrow niche but think again. What is sustainability? What does it mean?
When you have answered the questions you will know that it is applicable on everything and everywhere. The definition of sustainability is:
“…meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (Brundtland Commission, 1987)
Sustainability includes all areas of science and values. Arching between Economy, Environment and Society. It is only where the three pillars intersect that sustainability prevails. The concept of sustainability can be viewed like this:
This makes sustainability so challenging and sometimes hard to reach. You need to see the whole picture and at the same time break it down into details. Why am I telling you all this?
First, it is important to state what I mean when I write about sustainability. Second, I want to tell you about the Sustainability Living Blogs where you can add your blog and find like-minded bloggers. It is a great opportunity and a nice initiative by Kirsten at Sustainable Suburbia. I added my blog to the category General Slow, Sustainable or Simple Living Blogs since I write a bit of this and that. I suggest you take a peek by clicking the badge below.
Did you find anything interesting or inspiring? I hope you did. Sustainability is fun and brain teasing. As a biologist and gardener I have the concept in the back of my head constantly. Trying to find new ways to think and act to solve old problems. Sometimes it goes easy and other times I get frustrated over the ignorance I occasionally meet. But I will not give up and I hope more will find the passion for sustainability.
