The global environment is changing rapidly. In our own lifetimes, we have seen rivers turn black with pollution, forests disappear and the air become increasingly unbreathable. If the Earth’s systems collapse, so will our societies and our common futures.
Sustainable development is an urgent and undeniable need today, to revive our planet from the environmental crisis.
Ecological challenges like global warming, climate change, species extinction, loss of biodiversity, pollution, and more are largely a consequence of unprecedented growth in human population, technological advancement, environmental negligence and rampant development. Our future depends upon striking a balance between human development and environmental conservation.
