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 - Jonathan Flynn

Sustainability: The means by which a system can continue indefinitely. In a modern sociological and ecological sense, it refers to means by which we can sustain an environmental system whilst still providing for societal participants. This can be done through advocation of new technologies, and imposition of true external costs.
