The complexities of sustainablity reach far beyond environmental issues, such as water, climate change, biodiversity, sustainable production and consumption. Yet it is surprising, how some small changes in the
way we live our lives can create a much more viable and 'just' society. Whether you look at it from a point of economics, or whether you look at it from the point of global sustainability we all need to play a role in making this planet a healthier, safer and cleaner place to live. And by choosing to live in a home with total integration of sustainable features, you're choosing a smart way of living for the future.

Let us demystify the term 'sustainable living'...               It doesn’t mean giving up the pleasures of modern living. Put simply, as greenhouse gas emissions continue to soar, the answer is creative adaptation of current infrastructure and implementing applied technology in new housing design. Eco-houses are not just great for you and the environment but they also make good sense, dollar-wise. We have a feasible pathway that addresses the interconnected ecological, social and economic crises confronting the world. We can significantly reduce the pressure simply by shifting from traditional-methods-of-planning to sustainable-methods-of-living. So really, there is nothing stopping us from stepping outside the square and embracing the future...except perhaps the future itself.

The concept of sustainable development emerged in the 1980s in response to a growing awareness of the need to reconcile economic and social progress with the environment. The United Nations Conference on the Human Environment (Stockholm, 1972) drew the international community’s attention to this issue. The Earth Summit (Rio de Janeiro, 1992) accorded a strong priority to education in sustainable development, and that idea was maintained and developed at the World Summit for Sustainable Development (Johannesburg, 2002), which proposed the Decade of Education for Sustainable Development. The Decade was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in December 2002. The United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development 2005-2014 was officially launched at UN headquarters in New on March 1st by UNESCO Director General Koichiro Matsuura.

‘We no longer have a choice, ‘ says the Director General Matsuura. ‘Either humanity adapts its behavior to support sustainable development, meaning it ceases to pollute the environment, allows the renewal of natural resources and contributes to improve everybody’s well being, or it signs its own, more or less imminent, death sentence.’
