My Definition of Sustainability

By Sulayman Jawaid 
Sustainability is a commitment to planning for tomorrow, a commitment to preserving our society, and most importantly, a commitment to bettering the world we live in. Too often we find our society ridden with blind consumption - uncontrollably consuming without considering its drastic repercussions. Sustainability presents an effective means to combating the status quo. It means being aware of the effects of our actions and in turn helping others gain this same awareness for the practical solutions to mitigating our negative impact in this world. - Read More
