What Do We Mean By Sustainability?
Working for a sustainable future means building a better world for all of us. A world in which a few individuals don't take more than their fair share and resources are spread equally. When we dream of a sustainable future, we think about breathing cleaner air, enjoying healthier oceans and living in a more balanced society, in which the rights of all are respected and the environment is protected. A sustainable future is not just what we need, it's what we want.
Sustainability is meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. However, sustainability is not just abut natural resources - we also need to protect social and economic resources.
Art Buds Collective takes a holistic approach to the complex and interconnected issues surrounding sustainability. We know that our efforts to build a greener, fairer future must promote environmental, social and economic health. We understand that resources are finite and we must conserve their use, and that's why we have transformed the way we work with materials and created our green classroom manifesto. Our creativity in the present must stay true to the world we want future generations to inherit.
