Sustainability Defined by the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation
I like this definition of sustainability by the NYC Parks Department:
What is Sustainability?
Sustainability is a commitment to social, economic and environmental factors that promote long-term survival, a capacity to endure and a sustained quality of life. Most important, it means to think about the impact our actions have on the environment, on the economy and on future generations. At Parks, sustainability provides the lens for addressing many of the agency’s most pressing challenges.
