This blog was originally based on a course ran by Professor Nick Gray of the Trinity Centre for the Environment at Trinity College Dublin who also wrote a textbook for the module Facing up to global warming: What is going on and what you can do about it. Now working as an independent consultant, Nick continues to work in the area of environmental sustainability and looking at ways of making a difference without recriminations or guilt. Saving the planet is all about living sustainably.

Personal Definition of Sustainability - Graham Mills

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Sustainability is the concept of systems having the capacity to be regenerative, and can refer to systems pertaining to economic, political and environmental ideologies among others. To achieve sustainability, systems must possess the ability to undergo consumption without growth in throughput of matter and energy beyond regenerative or absorptive capacities.
Graham Mills, Genetics, Trinity College Dublin
