There was confusion in class recently about the meaning of ‘sustainability’, so let’s take a few minutes out to get our heads around this extremely important social issue. Below is the opening of the Wikipedia entry on sustainability. Find out what sustainablity actually is and at the same time practice using articles!
A related practice activity focusing on the effects of plastic on the environment can be found here. And if you need ideas about how to choose articles to go with nouns, read this.
As usual, if you think an article isn’t needed, just leave the drop-down menu blank!
In no article ecology, no article sustainability (from sustain and no article ability) is the property of no article biological systems to remain diverse and productive indefinitely. no article long-lived and healthy wetlands and no article forests are no article examples of no article sustainable biological systems. In no article more general terms, no article sustainability is the endurance of no article systems and no article processes. The organising principle for no article sustainability is no article sustainable development, which includes the four interconnected domains – no article ecology, no article economics, no article politics and no article culture. no article sustainability science is the study of no article sustainable development and no article environmental science. no article sustainability can also be defined as a socio-ecological process characterized by the pursuit of a common ideal. An ideal is by definition unattainable in a given time and space. However, by persistently and dynamically approaching it, the process results in a sustainable system.
