In my opinion, sustainability is a strategy arising from the realisation that the old ideal of progress is not bearable for the planet nor the people, as it assumes illimited resources and it excludes a wide part of humankind. Therefore, it means rethinking the approach to all fields of production, politics and education, to safeguard the dignity of today people and ensuring the dignity of future generations.
Sustainability can only be achieved through balance. We should take actions upon protecting the environment while also sustaining these actions. So the actions should also be sustainable in the context of societal sustainability.
