Our communities face enormous challenges as their social, economic, and environmental resources are damaged or depleted. Whatever issues we find ourselves facing, be it disease, child abuse, crime, injustice, weakened economies, energy shortages, lack of good jobs, extinction of species, poverty, destruction of forests, or pollution there are some common steps that will offer solutions to these seemingly diverse problems. In my opinion, I believe sustainable development offers the best opportunity for the future of our global environment. As stated in our required book reading (White, 15) sustainable development refers to that form of economic development that attempts to minimise environmental damage within the context of existing systems of production and consumption. I believe that sustainable development is a process that can define our problems and solve them in a way that is long-lasting. By following principles of sustainability we can overcome unanticipated consequences of short-sighted solutions, that deal only with the symptoms of our problems rather than the underlying causes. From what I have gathered throughout the module one readings, practicing sustainable development over a long-term one will not diminish the quality of the present environment, not critically reduce the availability of renewable resources, take into consideration the value of non-renewable resources to future generations, and not compromise the ability of other species or future generations to meet their needs. In discussing on the subject about sustainable development, I don't want to leave out that there are also many major challenges to be addressed. They require us to re-think our economy and our growth in favour of a society that is more economical in its use of raw materials and energy. Some of these challenges include: climate change, energy consumption, waste production, threats to public health, poverty, social exclusion, management of natural resources, loss of biodiversity, and land use. Sustainable development is no longer just a possible alternative, it is the path of reason. Several means of action already exist. Each person on his or her own level can be a participant in this gigantic project, which will affect the lives of future generations. So let's make the most of it!!!
