In today’s socially conscious world, we’re gaining a greater and greater understanding of how to responsibly help the less privileged world—be it in health care, agriculture, economics or otherwise. We’re no longer just asking, “what needs to be done,” but we’re examining how things can be done to have a lasting and meaningful impact. However, these days “sustainability” and “sustainable” are buzz words that seem to be thrown around haphazardly.
So we’re going to throw it out there:
- What is “sustainability?”
- How can we tell if our efforts are leading to it?
- How do we know when we’ve accomplished it?
- What are some good examples and why?
What do you think? What’s your experience? Are these questions even answerable?
