What is sustainability?
Over in the next six months I will develop skills in social networking, be able to identify different types of trees in Scotland. what they do and why we need them. Also I would like to learn about different stuff about the environment like the urban environmentalism because I stay in the city centre.
I have been told I am going to learn how environmental problems can be likened to and can help problem in the community. This will help me towards my bronze duke of Edinburgh award. Through my volunteering with SGP I will help them create a section on this website aimed at people my age and how to help them get involved with environmental issues in our community and the whole of Glasgow.
Before today I did not know about sustainability or what it means. I still don't really know but here is what I found out so far...
"sustainability is based on a simple principle; everything that we need for our survival and well- being depends either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony"
