About Sustainable Development

    We only have one Earth, yet our global population is currently using the equivalent of 1.5 planets to provide the resources we consume. If everyone alive in the world today had a similar lifestyle as the average citizen in the USA or Western Europe, we would need more than 5 planets to meet our demands.

    This, plus a rapidly growing world population means our planet is really being squeezed. Communities across the world are increasingly recognising these issues and accepting that there is a moral imperative and urgent need to achieve sustainability and take environmental issues seriously.
