Think Globally. Act Locally!
“Think of it as extending the Golden Rule through time. Do unto future generations as you would have them do unto you.”
“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
“A sustainable society is one that lives within the self-perpetuating limits of its environment. That society is not a “no growth” society – it is, rather, a society that recognizes the limits of growth and looks for alternative ways of growing.”
“In ecology, sustainability is how biological systems endure and remain diverse and productive. Long-lived and healthy wetlands and forests are examples of sustainable biological systems. For humans, sustainability is the potential for long-term maintenance of well being, which has ecological, economic, political and cultural dimensions. Sustainability requires the reconciliation of these environmental, social equity and economic demands – also referred to as the “three pillars” of sustainability or the 3 Es.”
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
