Sustainability is a systems thinking approach that addresses equity (people), the economy (prosperity) and the environment (planet). All three are interconnected. If one of these areas is ailing, then eventually they all will be affected. The challenges we’re facing today may sometimes feel overwhelming and unsolvable to a single person. And that is exactly why we must persevere as individuals to do what we can to be the change we wish to see in the world. Why? Because practicing sustainability in our own lives builds hope and influences others to make positive changes in their lives.
