Sustainability has been explored across disciplines in order to : investigate what is meant by sustainability; how to define and apply principles of sustainability; how to measure , evaluate and qualify sustainability; and how to overcome barriers inhibiting sustainability.
This paper is an exploration of how the fields of Environmental Planning and Environmental Education offer practical tools, techniques and approaches to addressing these questions about sustainability.
A Photo Display about Interpreting Sustainability
This series of photographs and quotes are examples of different kinds of approaches and meanings people have for "sustainability". The photos are from Canada and the United States . There is a juxtaposition between the small scale, local level initiatives and the larger scale industrial/corporate approaches. The idea is to incite reactions from viewers so that they challenge their own definitions and beliefs about sustainability. By identifying the diverse uses of the term "sustainability" through photos, it is hoped that the viewers will come closer to identifying how they themselves would articulate what sustainability is and how it can be achieved. Or quite possibly how sustainability is not being achieved.
