Accueil > A Dynamic Balance - Mise à jour: 08-01-2003 5:21 pm

The dynamic balance between cultural differences and this emerging global ethic is a key concept in educating for a sustainable future.  
It reminds us that sustainability will be built from the actions of people and businesses in their own communities, at local levels, and extend outwards in a spirals of shared understandings and revised and renewed visions.

It requires a dynamic balance among four dimensions and principles that underlie a sustainable future:

Dimension of Sustainability :
  • Ecological Sustainability
  • Social Sustainability
  • Economic Sustainability
  • Political Sustainability

    Related Value Principle :
  • Peace and Equity
  • Conservation
  • Appropriate Development
  • Democracy

    These principles mean that a sustainable future would be one in which people:
    - Care for each other and value social justice and peace
    - Protect natural systems and use resources wisely
    - Value appropriate development and satisfying livelihoods for all
    - Make decisions through fair and democratic means.

    Developing the capacity and commitment to apply these principles at the level of personal and family actions, and in decisions for local, national and global communities, is the task of educating for a sustainable future.
