Personal Definition of Sustainability - Christopher Fennell


Sustainability is the ultimate goal of sustainable development, which aims to improve or maintain quality of life but in a way that is within the carrying capacity of the environment. Economic and social necessities must be met but at a level maintainable by the environment.
