Sustainable development is a difficult concept to define, however one that is widely used and accepted internationally is: “development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.
As individuals there are many ways that we can make a contribution to sustainability in the way that we use energy & water, deal with waste, travel etc. Advice and support is freely available from many sources, but a good starting point is the UK government website www.defra.gov.uk
