Many communities are abuzz with talk about ‘sustainability,’ but what exactly is it? If you ask 20 people what it means, you’ll get 20 different answers. And that’s one of the reasons why it’s so difficult to define, design, and deliver, because it means different things to different people in different places at different times.
There is, however, one thing that remains constant: Every one of us plays an important part in sustainability, in fact so important that our behaviours at home, work, and play constitute the greatest potential for positive or negative change.
