Sustainability is a complex idea with a lot of moving elements. Nowadays, it is largely known for its impact on the environment, as a means of preserving Mother Earth’s resources for the future. At the current rate of consumption, exhaustible energy supplies such as fossil energy will soon be consumed, necessitating a shift to renewable energy sources such as solar or geothermal energy. There is a global effort to address climate change because the relationship between environmental degradation and unsustainable activities is obvious and urgent.
However, it is impossible to debate environmental sustainability without mentioning poverty. The link between the two may not be quite as evident, but moving toward a more sustainable future includes more than just avoiding environmentally destructive habits. It also entails broadening access to economic possibilities so that community members can meet their basic necessities. It doesn’t take long to see that although some communities have enough, others struggle to meet even the most basic human necessities. However, implementing environmental sustainability as a future paradigm necessitates reallocating resources so that undeveloped regions can begin to progress and reduce the circumstances under which they are suffering.
