What is the Meaning & Definition of sustainable

The concept of sustainable is a relatively new concept that comes from the environment but that can be linked to many areas such as social, economic and even political. Sustainable is an adjective of qualifying type that is used to refer to those practices or methodologies to put your main attention in caring for the environment but at the same time may be achievable in economic terms and which can mean profound changes in the way in which society interacts with the environment.
The care for the environment and discussions on this issue are relatively recent and it is not until a couple of years ago that the concept of sustainability and sustainable practices appeared in the everyday vocabulary. For specialists in these issues, the damage and destruction that the human being has caused about nature and the environment are already unsustainable and undeniable, so it is urgent to create new practices that allow to maintain our quality of life without generating deeper damage to the planet. To a large extent, this idea comes from the notion that the quality of life of human beings hard can become back to moments in which nature had not been altered, so it is necessary to search for a system that allows you to maintain that lifestyle without directly harming the environment.
Thus arises the notion of sustainability or sustainable development, one that involves or assumes that human beings can perfectly coexist with the environment where he lives without transforming it radical or harmfully. Sustainable development implies, inter alia, the use of renewables such as wind or water, so that the energy that is generated for a community not comes from non-renewable or polluting materials such as oil. In addition, sustainable development is supposed to the community between human being and environment possible insofar and as soon as the first activities on the environment do not involve systematic damage to it.
On the other hand, sustainable development is related to economic aspects since it implies the development of strategies of consumption and use of resources that may be available to all communities, as happens for example with practices of trade fair and local. At the political level, sustainable development is understood as the responsibility not only of individuals, organizations, or companies but mainly measures and strategies taken by States that seek to establish better forms of coexistence with the environment and that can be carried out from the fate of logical budgets to such issues.
