The core principle of sustainability is the desire to meet the basic material needs of the current generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. In order to achieve this goal, we must recognize and address the conflicts and trade-offs involved in balancing environmental integrity, social equity, and economic stability. Such complex work necessarily involves contributions from a wide range of disciplines and it also requires a re-examination of the relationship between human value systems, cultural practices, and the associated long-term implications for the ecosystem.
