There is a very straightforward reason as to why sustainability is vital in today’s world: without us being sustainable, it will be impossible to maintain our quality of life. It is a known fact, that people have a longer life expectancy through sustainable development. The United Nations reported that 10 billion people are expected to be living on planet earth by the year 2100. This rise in population will result in more demand for supplies and energy to ensure survival. Energy is produced by Finite fossil fuels instead of sustainable resources. If this continues to happen, the damage this will have on the environment will result in us meeting a dead end.
Sustainability has never been stressed as much as in today’s world. The community are more informed and educated to protect the present and most importantly the futures of upcoming generations.
