Video: What Is Sustainability?

Video: What Is Sustainability?


There are times when you hear a word so much that you think you know the meaning of the word. If you had asked me before I saw this video, I would have said that sustainability is when you replace what you have taken and therefore have not destroyed the environment for your own limited benefit.

Iím not wrong but there might be more to the word than a gloss-over understanding. I am still learning about this topic and what it means to me.

This video, Sustainability Through Animation, does a good job of explaining what sustainability is and the four steps we as human beings can start to do right now to pull back from the edge.

If you are in the loop then maybe this video is too simplistic. But for the rest of us that want to part of the solution and donít have time to attend conferences of sustainability we need clear, accessible information.

    This should be shown to every child and adult in the household. It is a beautifully done video with a clear message relevant to all our lives. Each person can do something to aid in reducing this enormous challenge. Action is all that counts now, so act friends.

    I am not opposed to the big oil firms making a living for their stockholders--I just wish they would do it raising algae for bio-diesel and making bio-diesel from the algae instead of making such a mess scraping the bottom of the petroleum barrel.
