Sustainability – How to ensure this is daily practice within our service.

Sustainability is being able to meet our current needs without infringing on the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

From this perspective, sustainability is not just about conservation but also about related issues of fairness and equity and the importance of thinking about our impact on the lives of future generations.

Today’s young children represent the first of those future generations and this makes it important for us, as educators, to help them realise the significance of caring for and protecting their environment.
