Why Sustainability

Each successive generation of human beings has pursued growth in multiple dimensions: material growth, economic growth, growth in collective knowledge, and spiritual growth.

Our recent generations have an average global lifespan of some 70+ years, while it was only 48 years in 1950 and 31 years in 1900. Each generation has first tried to make sure it survives, and then make a mark on the ongoing ‘progress’ of the human civilization. Indeed, we have progressed a lot.

Or, have we?

Most of our material well-being, surplus wealth, and economic growth has come at the cost of natural resources. Our economics has led us to the false belief that the infinite wants of an ever-growing human population can be satisfied by the finite ecological capacity of the planet. We have never stopped to think about this logical and moral disconnect and the plethora of problems it has created.

Sustainability is about this much-needed course correction. It is about instilling a holistic view among citizens about human life, well-being and our responsibility to the planet.
