Viewpoints on the Concept of Sustainability
There are many different viewpoints of the concept of sustainability that vary culturally and socially worldwide. At its most basic, sustainability is the “capacity to be continued at a certain level or functioning.”
In the context of the UN Sustainability Goals, this applies to environmental, social and economic sustainability, and the processes and actions through which we can avoid depletion of natural resources, promote human well-being and ensure the quality of life of current and future generations increases.
The concept of sustainability has existed within cultures for centuries. Indigenous people have used these lands to secure resources with the knowledge that resources should not be used beyond the ability of future generations to also use them. The concept can be seen in the Seventh Generation principle in Haundensaunee knowledge which emphasizes that the decisions we make today should result in a sustainable world seven generations into the future.
