LS 1: Sustainability for the Future

Sustainability is a fairly simple concept: the capacity to support, maintain or endure over time.  It is based on the Brundtland definition of sustainability “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. In this regard, it is closely related to intergenerational equity – where the needs of future generations are taken into account.

The sustainable development model seeks to integrate the four capitals– natural, economic (physical and financial), human and social by understanding the interrelationships and dependencies between them. The challenge is maintaining viable levels of all the capitals in a world looking for higher living standards.
