SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE - POST 1

January 29, 2020

Sustainable Development is Development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet their own needs. This definition is given in the "Our Common Future" report commonly referred to as the Brundtland Report. But I like the two very old statements which convey the meaning very well when the word Sustainable Development was never used in the present sense. The first one is by John Muir in the late 19th Century - "Not blind opposition to progress, but opposition to blind progress". The second one is attributed to the Father of Nation Mahatma Gandhi made in 1909. - “The world has enough for everyone's need, but not enough for everyone's greed.”
