What is sustainable development?
Sustainable development focuses on balancing our human need for technology and economic progress on the one hand, and protecting our environment on the other.
Its goal is therefore to meet our contemporary needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.
In other words, sustainable development involves finding an ideal balance between different interests. All development that contributes technologically, economically, ecologically, politically or socially to a healthy earth with prosperous inhabitants and functioning ecosystems is sustainable.
