Our daily lifestyle and consumption choices have a large impact on environmental quality, and we are consuming energy, water, materials, and generating waste at an unsustainable rate. Our climate is changing – and those changes are occurring more rapidly than we had previously thought.
The twin global pressures of climate change and uncertain economic times require us to examine our everyday habits and routines and find ways to use resources wisely - to 'tread more lightly' - so that we can continue to thrive as a community to meet the needs of current and future generations.
At the heart of true 'sustainability', is the vision of a community working together to achieve a balance between economic prosperity, environmental conservation, cultural identity and social wellbeing. Everyone can make a difference – at work, at school, at home.
