This video provides a basic definition of sustainability. You’ve probably heard the term “sustainability” in some context or another. It is likely that you’ve used some product or service that was labeled as sustainable, or perhaps you are aware of a campus or civic organization that focuses on sustainability. You may recognize that sustainability has to do with preserving or maintaining resources—we often associate sustainability with things like recycling, using renewable energy sources like solar and wind power, and preserving natural spaces like rainforests and coral reefs. However, unless you have an inherent interest in sustainability, you probably haven’t thought much about what the term actually means. Simply put, sustainability is the capacity to endure or continue. If a product or activity is sustainable, it can be reused, recycled, or repeated in some way because it has not exhausted all of the resources or energy required to create it. Sustainability can be broadly defined as the ability of something to maintain itself. Biological systems such as wetlands or forests are good examples of sustainability since they remain diverse and productive over long periods of time. Seen in this way, sustainability has to do with preserving resources and energy over the long term rather than exhausting them quickly to meet short-term needs or goals. The term sustainability first appeared in forestry studies in Germany in the 1800s, when forest overseers began to manage timber harvesting for continued use as a resource. In 1804, German forestry researcher Georg Hartig described sustainability as “utilizing forests to the greatest possible extent, but still in a way that future generations will have as much benefit as the living generation” (Schmutzenhofer 1992). While our current definitions are quite different and much expanded from Hartig’s, sustainability still accounts for the need to preserve natural spaces, to use resources wisely, and to maintain them in an equitable manner for all human beings, both now and in the future. Sustainability seeks new ways of addressing the relationship between societal growth and environmental degradation, which would allow human societies and economies to grow without destroying or overexploiting the environment or ecosystems in which those societies exist. The most widely quoted definition of sustainability comes from the Brundtland Commission of the United Nations in 1987, which defined sustainability as meeting “the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” But sustainability is about more than just the economic benefits of recycling materials and resources. While the economic factors are important, sustainability also accounts for the social and environmental consequences of human activity. This concept is referred to as the “three pillars of sustainability,” which asserts that true sustainability depends upon three interlocking factors: environmental preservation, social equity, and economic viability. First, sustainable human activities must protect the earth’s environment. Second, people and communities must be treated fairly and equally—particularly in regard to eradicating global poverty and the environmental exploitation of poor countries and communities. And third, sustainability must be economically feasible—human development depends upon the long-term production, use, and management of resources as part of a global economy. Only when all three of these pillars are incorporated can an activity or enterprise be described as sustainable. Some describe this three-part model as: Planet, People and Profit. From pollution, to resource depletion, to loss of biodiversity, to climate change, a growing human footprint is evident. This is not sustainable. We need to act differently if the world and its human and non-human inhabitants are to thrive in the future. Sustainability is about how we can preserve the earth and ensure the continued survival and nourishment of future generations. You and everyone you know will be affected in some way by the choices our society makes in the future regarding the earth and its resources. In fact, your very life may well depend upon those choices.

Twitter: https://twitter.com/science_sauce Natural capital refers to the resources a nation has such as fisheries, fossil fuels, forests etc. Natural income is the annual yield of goods and services provided by the capital. For example, a forest provides a yield of wood and paper. Sustainability refers to the extraction of a material at a rate at which the system can naturally replace it. For example, chopping down more wood than a forest produces each year through new growth would be unsustainable.

What does SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT mean? SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT meaning - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT definition - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Sustainable development is a process for meeting human development goals while sustaining the ability of natural systems to continue to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services upon which the economy and society depends. While the modern concept of sustainable development is derived most strongly from the 1987 Brundtland Report, it is rooted in earlier ideas about sustainable forest management and twentieth century environmental concerns. As the concept developed, it has shifted to focus more on economic development, social development and environmental protection. Sustainable development is the organizing principle for sustaining finite resources necessary to provide for the needs of future generations of life on the planet. It is a process that envisions a desirable future state for human societies in which living conditions and resource-use continue to meet human needs without undermining the "integrity, stability and beauty" of natural biotic systems. Sustainability can be defined as the practice of maintaining processes of productivity indefinitely—natural or human made—by replacing resources used with resources of equal or greater value without degrading or endangering natural biotic systems. Sustainable development ties together concern for the carrying capacity of natural systems with the social, political, and economic challenges faced by humanity. Sustainability science is the study of the concepts of sustainable development and environmental science. There is an additional focus on the present generations' responsibility to regenerate, maintain and improve planetary resources for use by future generations. Sustainable development has its roots in ideas about sustainable forest management which were developed in Europe during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In response to a growing awareness of the depletion of timber resources in England, John Evelyn argued that "sowing and planting of trees had to be regarded as a national duty of every landowner, in order to stop the destructive over-exploitation of natural resources" in his 1662 essay Sylva. In 1713 Hans Carl von Carlowitz, a senior mining administrator in the service of Elector Frederick Augustus I of Saxony published Sylvicultura oeconomica, a 400-page work on forestry. Building upon the ideas of Evelyn and French minister Jean-Baptiste Colbert, von Carlowitz developed the concept of managing forests for sustained yield. His work influenced others, including Alexander von Humboldt and Georg Ludwig Hartig, eventually leading to the development of a science of forestry. This in turn influenced people like Gifford Pinchot, first head of the US Forest Service, whose approach to forest management was driven by the idea of wise use of resources, and Aldo Leopold whose land ethic was influential in the development of the environmental movement in the 1960s. Following the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring in 1962, the developing environmental movement drew attention to the relationship between economic growth and development and environmental degradation. Kenneth E. Boulding in his influential 1966 essay The Economics of the Coming Spaceship Earth identified the need for the economic system to fit itself to the ecological system with its limited pools of resources. One of the first uses of the term sustainable in the contemporary sense was by the Club of Rome in 1972 in its classic report on the Limits to Growth, written by a group of scientists led by Dennis and Donella Meadows of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Describing the desirable "state of global equilibrium", the authors wrote: "We are searching for a model output that represents a world system that is sustainable without sudden and uncontrolled collapse and capable of satisfying the basic material requirements of all of its people."

Sustainability is the use and management of resources that allows for regeneration. It is the use of our natural capital in a managed, smart way that does not impact future generations. Ecosystems can provide goods and services, through natural capital, that are beneficial to humans. Sustainable development meets the needs to the present without harming the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Tram Chim National Park is one of two wetland preservation areas in a richly biodiverse part of Vietnam called the Plain of Reeds. In an effort to balance the difficult work of conservation with the demands of poor communities in the surrounding areas that depend on the park's resources for their livelihoods, Tram Chim is working on innovative ways to involve the local people in the conservation process. Community based sustainable use of natural resources is one approach the Park has begun to explore. The park has been working with poor groups that demonstrate an interest in and commitment to resource conservation. The groups develop resource management plans that are reviewed and approved by park officials, granting the local people permission to enter the national park and gather sanctioned resources for their livelihoods. Since the inception of this system, park officials find their conservation and regulation work is much easier, and local people have greater incomes to provide more stability for their family. Villagers recognize the value of conserving resources today to ensure the abundance of resources will remain for future generations. This project has been implemented by the park in cooperation with World Wildlife Fund funded by Coca-Cola and permitted by Dong Thap Provincial People Committee between 2008-2001. This film was produced by Institute of Tropical Biology in collaboration with Tram Chim National Park, RECOFTC - The Center for People and Forests, and The University of East Anglia, with financial support from the British Economic and Social Research Council.

Latin America and the Caribbean is a very wealthy region in natural resources, but historically has had difficulties translating boom periods for its primary sector exports into long-term economic development processes. That's why ECLAC advocates strengthening the governance of natural resources through a host of national policies that address their ownership and the appropriation and distribution of earnings derived from their exploitation, in a bid to maximize their contribution to development. This is one of the proposals outlined on the position paper that ECLAC will present to its 44 member states and 12 associate members in the next session -- the most important meeting held, every two years, by this regional United Nations organization-, scheduled for May 5-9 in Lima.

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Sustainable management takes the concepts from sustainability and synthesizes them with the concepts of management. Sustainability has three branches: the environment, the needs of present and future generations, and the economy. Using these branches, it creates the ability of a system to thrive by maintaining economic viability and also nourishing the needs of the present and future generations by limiting resource depletion. From this definition, sustainable management has been created to be defined as the application of sustainable practices in the categories of businesses, agriculture, society, environment, and personal life by managing them in a way that will benefit current generations and future generations. Sustainable management is needed because it is an important part of the ability to successfully maintain the quality of life on our planet. Sustainable management can be applied to all aspects of our lives. For example, the practices of a business should be sustainable if they wish to stay in businesses, because if the business is unsustainable, then by the definition of sustainability they will cease to be able to be in competition. Communities are in a need of sustainable management, because if the community is to prosper, then the management must be sustainable. Forest and natural resources need to have sustainable management if they are to be able to be continually used by our generation and future generations. Our personal lives also need to be managed sustainably. This can be by making decisions that will help sustain our immediate surroundings and environment, or it can be by managing our emotional and physical well-being. Sustainable management can be applied to many things, as it can be applied as a literal and an abstract concept. Meaning, depending on what they are applied to the meaning of what it is can change.

Realizing the BASF North America Headquarters Building in a sustainable way was of the utmost importance for the chemical company. The building has many sustainable aspects, being that the majority of the materials used are recycled and came no more than 500 miles from the construction site. This resulted in reducing the draw on our natural resources. Turner Construction, who built this 325.000 square foot Headquarters Building, shares its sustainable vision for the future and used many BASF products in the construction. Including the BASF's roofing system, an easy to use spray application and Green Sense® Concrete program. The building exceeded many people's expectations and received significant awards including the US Green Building Council's Project of the Year and the LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) double Platinum certification. Paul M. Parmentola at Turner Construction is convinced that next to the BASF materials, the team itself is responsible for the success. Paul was impressed by the commitment to sustainability and says: "All the people I have dealt with in this project, the first thing they talk about is sustainability, and the last thing they talk about is sustainability." This basis provides the basis for a strong and cohesive vision towards the future of sustainable construction.

Natural resources are essential to food production, enhanced rural development and sustainable livelihoods. Conflicts and competition over access to, and the use of these resources are likely to increase in many regions and will be exacerbated by changing growing conditions, increased water scarcity, loss of biodiversity, extreme weather events and other effects of climate change. The sustainable management of natural resources for the benefit of present and future generations requires addressing key aspects of natural resources and their governance across all sectors.

Life Is Good : Sustainable Living (National Geographic Documentary) Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual's or society's use of the Earth's natural resources and personal resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet. Proponents of sustainable living aim to conduct their lives in ways that are consistent with sustainability, in natural balance and respectful of humanity's symbiotic relationship with the Earth's natural ecology and cycles.
