What Is Sustainability?
This video provides a basic definition of sustainability. You’ve probably heard the term “sustainability” in some context or another. It is likely that you’ve used some product or service that was labeled as sustainable, or perhaps you are aware of a campus or civic organization that focuses on sustainability. You may recognize that sustainability has to do with preserving or maintaining resources—we often associate sustainability with things like recycling, using renewable energy sources like solar and wind power, and preserving natural spaces like rainforests and coral reefs. However, unless you have an inherent interest in sustainability, you probably haven’t thought much about what the term actually means. Simply put, sustainability is the capacity to endure or continue. If a product or activity is sustainable, it can be reused, recycled, or repeated in some way because it has not exhausted all of the resources or energy required to create it. Sustainability can be broadly defined as the ability of something to maintain itself. Biological systems such as wetlands or forests are good examples of sustainability since they remain diverse and productive over long periods of time. Seen in this way, sustainability has to do with preserving resources and energy over the long term rather than exhausting them quickly to meet short-term needs or goals. The term sustainability first appeared in forestry studies in Germany in the 1800s, when forest overseers began to manage timber harvesting for continued use as a resource. In 1804, German forestry researcher Georg Hartig described sustainability as “utilizing forests to the greatest possible extent, but still in a way that future generations will have as much benefit as the living generation” (Schmutzenhofer 1992). While our current definitions are quite different and much expanded from Hartig’s, sustainability still accounts for the need to preserve natural spaces, to use resources wisely, and to maintain them in an equitable manner for all human beings, both now and in the future. Sustainability seeks new ways of addressing the relationship between societal growth and environmental degradation, which would allow human societies and economies to grow without destroying or overexploiting the environment or ecosystems in which those societies exist. The most widely quoted definition of sustainability comes from the Brundtland Commission of the United Nations in 1987, which defined sustainability as meeting “the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” But sustainability is about more than just the economic benefits of recycling materials and resources. While the economic factors are important, sustainability also accounts for the social and environmental consequences of human activity. This concept is referred to as the “three pillars of sustainability,” which asserts that true sustainability depends upon three interlocking factors: environmental preservation, social equity, and economic viability. First, sustainable human activities must protect the earth’s environment. Second, people and communities must be treated fairly and equally—particularly in regard to eradicating global poverty and the environmental exploitation of poor countries and communities. And third, sustainability must be economically feasible—human development depends upon the long-term production, use, and management of resources as part of a global economy. Only when all three of these pillars are incorporated can an activity or enterprise be described as sustainable. Some describe this three-part model as: Planet, People and Profit. From pollution, to resource depletion, to loss of biodiversity, to climate change, a growing human footprint is evident. This is not sustainable. We need to act differently if the world and its human and non-human inhabitants are to thrive in the future. Sustainability is about how we can preserve the earth and ensure the continued survival and nourishment of future generations. You and everyone you know will be affected in some way by the choices our society makes in the future regarding the earth and its resources. In fact, your very life may well depend upon those choices.

Sustainable development |  Biology for all | FuseSchool
Like all living organisms, humans need resources to live. We need food, clean water and a shelter to live in. A few thousand years ago, this is all we would have wanted - a full stomach and a warm, dry home. But, as the human race has developed we now have a need for other, more luxury items - maybe a bicycle or car to get us from a to b, electricity, even the internet. And all these things require resources, lots and lots of resources such as fossil fuels and metals. Many of these resources are limited - once all the fossil fuels have been extracted from the Earth and burned to provide us with fuels and electricity, there will be none left. How will future generations of humans cope without the things we take for granted? And that’s before we even consider the effect the burning of fossil fuels is having on our planet and the climate… future generations will also have to deal with the effects of that too. Sustainable development involves making sure that there will be resources left for future generations. One way is to use renewable resources, such as solar energy, wind and biogas, to generate electricity rather than fossil fuels.Another example is using quick growing trees, like pine, as a source of wood. These trees can be cut down and replanted, providing an ever-ready supply. This is more sustainable than using slow growing trees like oak, which take hundreds of years to reach maturity. Recycling plastics, metals and paper means that fewer resources need to be extracted from the earth, as we can reuse the already extracted products, meaning more resources for future generations. As the human population grows, so does the demand for food. There is limited farmland, soil fertility, water and fish-stocks. So we should also be using sustainable ways of growing, catching and farming food. We remove more than 77 billion kilograms of fish from the oceans each year! Unsurprisingly, the number of some species of fish in the wild are declining because of overfishing: we’re taking fish from the sea faster than populations can reproduce. Some species of fish are endangered because of this, and might go extinct if their populations continue to fall. There are several initiatives that have been introduced to help conserve fish populations and allow us to enjoy eating fish now and in the future. Fishing quotas are strict numbers of fish that limit the amount of fish that people can catch. This reduces the amount of fish being taken from the sea. The holes on fishing nets have to be large enough to let the smaller, younger fish escape. This then gives them the chance to reproduce, and help maintain the population. Another solution is fish farms. Eating farmed fish reduces the number of fish being caught from the wild. It is important to realise that these initiatives have an impact on the people who rely on fishing for their income. Fishing quotas have helped to increase fish populations, but there has to be a balance between sustainable development for future generations and making sure that people today are also provided for. So, in this video we have covered what sustainable development is and some examples including how to solve the problem of overfishing.

ELIXIR webinar: Sustainability of Life Science Resources
Chiara Gabella (ELIXIR Switzerland) discusses different funding models for life science resources and applies them on the Universal Protein Resource (UniProt), a key resource for protein sequences and functional information knowledge. The webinar also presents a new model whereby funding agencies would set aside a fixed percentage of their research grant volumes, which would subsequently be redistributed to core data resources according to well-defined selection criteria. Under this model, compatible with the principles of open science, less than 1% of the total amount dedicated to research grants in the life sciences would be sufficient to cover the costs of the core data resources worldwide, including both knowledgebases and deposition databases.

Sustainability, Natural Capital and Natural Income
Twitter: https://twitter.com/science_sauce Natural capital refers to the resources a nation has such as fisheries, fossil fuels, forests etc. Natural income is the annual yield of goods and services provided by the capital. For example, a forest provides a yield of wood and paper. Sustainability refers to the extraction of a material at a rate at which the system can naturally replace it. For example, chopping down more wood than a forest produces each year through new growth would be unsustainable.

To create the physical resources for battery, wind and solar power, we need metal, but common metal mining practices cause huge negative impacts. Gerard Barron and Dr. Greg Stone with DeepGreen join our host, Daniel Schmachtenberger, to define environmental sustainability and discuss how it can coincide with economic growth and prosperity. Join us as we journey through DeepGreen’s method of ocean mining, what they’re doing to minimize their environmental impact, and their development goals to no longer need to mine metals within 70-80 years.

"Fishing resources and sustainability" by Colégio Euro-Atlântico, Portugal #14
Video #14 in the CEI Short Film Contest. Please "Thumbs up " this video if you want to vote for it! Students: Francisca Abreu João Freitas Rui Gândara Ana Jorge José Marques Vasco Pires Veronika Somova António Sousa Teacher: Paula Pinto The Atlantic horse mackerel is one of the main species fished off the coast of Portugal. It has a great economic importance and it is one of the most used species in Portuguese traditional dishes. Our research was initiated with a visit to IPMA where we learned about the characteristics of the species. We then visited a fish market where we learned how to correctly obtain the measurements of the fish. We also visited a traditional fishing boat where we got to know how people that fish as a profession spend their days on the sea and a canning facility where we learned about the different processes of fish conservation. In our research we studied a population of Atlantic horse mackerel from the north of Portugal with a total of 29 individuals. Some of the characteristics we studied were: the size, the weight, the state of the reproductive organs and the age, using the otoliths. We could therefore conclude information about the reproductive cycle and establish a relation between length and age of the specie. It is important to conduct research like this in order to establish fishing restrictions with a view of sustainability and the species’ future.

Environmental Econ: Crash Course Economics #22
So, if economics is about choices and how we use our resources, econ probably has a lot to say about the environment, right? Right! In simple terms, pollution is just a market failure. The market is producing more pollution than society wants. This week, Adriene and Jacob focus on the environment, and how economics can be used to control and reduce pollution and emissions. You'll learn about supply and demand, incentives, and how government intervention influences the environment. Crash Course is on Patreon!

Sustainability? Using resources found in the city” – Sheila Kennedy
“Chrysanthemum Building: Affordable residential urban infill development, Boston, USA” by Kennedy & Violich Architecture doesn’t make a separation between natural resources and resources that are found in the city. The project won a Holcim Awards Acknowledgement and promotes sustainability as a ‘common sense’ culture. Read more: http://www.holcimfoundation.org/Projects/chrysanthemum-building
Webinar Three: Evaluating Decision Support Tools—Sustainability of Tools and Resources
This webinar is the third in a three part webinar series: Evaluating Decision Support: Tools, Resources, and More. n this ongoing webinar series, Holly Hartmann will discuss best practices for climate change decision-support evaluation. Climate change decision-support is defined by the National Research Council report (2009), Informing Decisions in a Changing Climate, as “organized efforts to produce, disseminate, and facilitate the use of data and information in order to improve the quality and efficacy of climate-related decisions.” In the first webinar, Holly will cover topics of communication effectiveness for decision-support tools and resources ranging from strategies to field-testing. In the second webinar, Holly will discuss design strategies and tactics for decision-support tools and resources that begins with understanding what decision-makers are trying to do, then facilitates the resource’s ease of use. In the third webinar, Holly will discuss factors supporting the longevity of decision-support tools and resources beyond its funded research project timeline, including technology sustainability, transferability, and interoperability. Presented by Holly Hartmann the Director of Climate Science Applications for Carpe Diem West, a nonprofit dedicated to tackling the challenges posed by climate change in the American West. Holly is a leader in research related to the development of decision support tools for climate, water, and other resource management applications, especially linking research with the needs of decision makers and moving research into agency operations. Formerly the Director of the University of Arizona Arid Lands Information Center and a co-investigator in NOAA’s Southwest RISA team, CLIMAS, Holly joined the Pacific Northwest RISA team, CIRC, in 2015. She is currently working with CIRC’s fellow Climate Tools builders on assessing the user-friendliness and sustainability of CIRC’s sites and applications.
