Sustainability is ensuring the Peak of Good Living for current AND future generations. The goal is for us to maintain personal, social, economic, and environmental wellness with smart practices today so our families can do the same in decades and centuries to come. Perhaps to do even better than maintain... to THRIVE!
Apex Sustainability branches into 7 central sustainability topics:
Clean Energy & Efficiency, Clean Mobility, Preservation & Conservation, Waste Management, Living Local, Resiliency, and Equity & Economics.
Resiliency is an adaptation strategy to cope with a current challenge (Think organizing litter clean ups in our Town parks).
Resiliency is a branch of sustainability. Sustainability is a mitigation strategy to prevent a future challenge (Think promoting education & awareness of the harm caused by litter).
