What is sustainability?

Sustainability - ensuring that human opportunities for self-realization do not decline over time. Needs and opportunities for self-realization depend on access to: food, housing, clean air and water, security, political freedom, health care, education, electric power, transportation, relationships with other species and with well-functioning ecosystems
