Spark Grants - Environment & Sustainability

About Environment & Sustainability (July 2017)

Environmental sustainability is a state in which the demands placed on the environment can be met without reducing its capacity to allow all people to live well, now and in the future. Environmental sustainability promotes systems and actions that support human well-being and are compatible with sustaining natural (environmental) systems.

These systems provide ecological services vital for human survival, typically consider long time horizons, incorporate contributions from the social sciences and ethics, and seeks to balance society's need to provide ecological protection and maintain stable economic conditions.
