What is the Meaning & Definition of sustainability

The term sustainability refers to the balance between a species with the resources of the environment to which it belongs. Basically, sustainability, it is proposing to meet the needs of the current generation but without affecting this sacrificed the future capabilities of the following generations to meet their own needs, i.e., something like the search for the right balance between these two issues.
I.e., the proposal of this concept is that you exploited a resource but that is that exploitation, utilization is carried out below the limits of renewal of the same. Because only so can preserve satisfactorily the capabilities of those who come behind us.
A typical and widespread case about this balance between species and resource use sustainability seeks and proposes is that hovers around the wood from felling trees in forests.
As you know if you are felling too a forest there is a risk that this disappears, but if such use or exploitation of the raw material is performed thoroughly and under a certain limit in which never commits the extinction of this resource, then, the question can be balanced, i.e., continue to be having forests and in addition you can still use wood to build lovely tables which then brighten and adorn our environments.
But in addition to the case of the wood we mentioned, there are other resources such as water, fertile soil and fishing that can be sustainable or cease to be if that does not comply with this fair balance which we spoke above, because when it goes beyond this limit it will be very difficult to resume and return to the previous conditions.
Sustainability can be studied and even handled through various levels of time and space and also in many contexts of economic, social and environmental organization. The subject can focus either from a global view of the planet or shred it, break down it into several parts such as by economic sectors, municipalities, districts, countries and individual houses.
Meanwhile, whatever angle or place from which it is addressed, it is important to emphasize that it is an extremely important issue to serve throughout the world since it depends on that we leave to our children, for future generations a world habitable, healthy and where natural resources abound and are not exhausted by the human irresponsibility of a little charity use.
The Earth, regulation of the sustainability Charter
The action of the sustainable development implementation proposes respect for certain values and ethical principles, while many of them are content in the document known as the Earth Charter, which was appropriately developed with the collaboration of diverse individuals and organizations worldwide, contributed their visions for a more sustainable world. Of course the United Nations was instrumental in their promotion and dissemination.
Among its main postulates are: the respect and care of life, ecological integrity, social and economic justice, democracy, not violence and peace,
Also, this international scope document is used by many organizations to teach regarding the matter and as political influence.
The healthy ecosystem
When the ecosystem is healthy, it is possible to provide to human beings and organisms that inhabit it goods and services that do not impact negatively on the environment.
Meanwhile, this ideal scenario requires two major proposals, on the one hand environmental management that draws on information obtained from the Earth Sciences, environmental sciences, management of the demand for resources and the conservation biology of; and on the other hand the management of consumption made by human beings, whose information will come from the economic sciences.
