Sustainability means living within the resources of the planet without damaging the environment now or in the future. Iceland has the opportunity to be a role-model as a sustainable society. One of The Icelandic Start-up Centers mission is to develop a sustainable role-model community in Iceland. A community that resembles a living system where human, economic and natural resources are renewed and in balance for long term perpetuity.
Sustainability is the capacity to endure. Sustainability should and is in some ways already a global mission, but the global sustainable mission on earth needs more awareness and understanding. Collaborated mission of sustainability is not only wise for the greater good of human kind and the environment, but it is the only way for earth and its habitats to survive in a prospering planet as we still know planet earth today.
To be sustainable as a consumers depending on natural resources our resources has to grow as much or more than we as a race consume and/or waste, that is not today’s reality. If we waste and consume to much for too long time a planetary death will be a fact sooner that later. Mounting evidence suggests that we are already in this type of downward spiral as we consume and waste much more than planet earth can handle for a long term. This we need to change, we need to adapt new type of lifestyle and culture that leads us to growth and prosperity.
To change this people on this planet need to be more aware of living a sustainable lifestyle. People need to learn how to life a sustainable lifestyle, sustainable lifestyle is living a life of dignity in harmony with nature.
