What we're about

This group is for anyone with a background in or interested in learning more about the concepts of sustainability and how to implement these concepts within your community, organization, or even just at home. Sustainability applies to a multitude of areas, and as such, the events in this group will cover the various aspects of sustainability.

According to the Oxford Dictionary :), the definition of "sustainability" is
"the ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level" or "avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance".
