Sustainability

Sustainability refers to the capacity of a system to support itself for an extended period of time. In the context of the environment, it means that the health and diversity of an ecosystem are continuously maintained through natural cycles. In recent years, human activities have begun to undermine this sustainability, altering Earth’s ecosystems in ways that cause permanent damage. Through sustainable development, however, humans are working to mitigate their impact and ensure the long-term sustainability of systems that support life.
