What is Sustainability?
In the 21st century, I think the heroes will be the people who will improve the quality of life, fight poverty and introduce more sustainability.
The notion of ‘reduce and refine’ is one I’ve pursued. I truly believe that by making things less complex, by finding innovative ways to make sustainability affordable, we can advance the notion that it is possible.
Sustainability is an attempt to provide the best outcomes for the human and natural environments both now and into the indefinite future. It relates to the continuity of economic, social, institutional and environmental aspects of human society, as well as the non-human environment. It is intended to be a means of configuring civilization and human activity so that society, its members and its economies are able to meet their needs and express their greatest potential in the present, while preserving biodiversity and natural ecosystems, and planning and acting for the ability to maintain these ideals in a very long term. Sustainability affects every level of organization, from the local neighborhood to the entire planet.
We use this area to explain what the term means to us.
In our own words as educators, we define the term, and we guide our learners through accumulated knowledge and experience.
We fully utilise pre-produced videos, lesson plans, and teaching materials that we have assessed for quality.
We become both educators and curators, providing a professional frame of reference through which global learning can be better viewed and understood.
This is an opportunity to monitor the huge amount of online resources that have been funded and produced by NGOs’ and corporations’.
We can then compare these resources to our educational standards, and promote access to only what we adjudicate to be the very best for learning.
