the ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level

Sustainability focuses on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. The concept of sustainability is composed of three pillars: economic, environmental and social – also known informally as profits, planet and people.

Above are a variety of Sustainability definitions, but for me sustainability is common sense, it should just be the way we live, it’s about making conscious choices now that have little impact on our environment and humans, that allows our environment and societies to thrive, stay connected  and nourish one another in a regenerative and abundant way. It’s about our socio-ecological systems living in harmony with one another and realizing we are one.
