 What is Sustainability?

Sustainability is the integration of environmental health, social equity, cultural vitality and economic responsibility to create and maintain thriving, diverse, resilient communities for this generation and those to come. The practice of sustainability recognizes these are complex and interconnected issues that require an interdisciplinary, inclusive and collaborative systems approach to reach a state of collective well-being and social and environmental justice.
