Today’s episode is a slightly different format compared to the one we’ve been developing over the last few shows, as we wanted to take advantage of an interesting public conversation that was held at Concordia University a few weeks ago. It was a panel called “What, if anything, is sustainability?” which was a part of the Annual Sustainability Across Disciplines Conference hosted by the Loyola College for Diversity and Sustainability.
You’ll notice that the Brundtland Commission definition (of Sustainable Development) is mentioned quite a few times in the episode. Just in case you need a refresher here it is:
“Sustainable development is the kind of development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
from: Brundtland, G. H. (1987). Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development: Our Common Future. United Nations.
