What is sustainability? Why is it important?

This term we begin by understanding how a sustainable future considers and depends on four aspects: environmental, economic, social and cultural. Our focus then moves to the environmental aspect of sustainability, namely biophysical systems and we use two New Zealand case studies to do this: Craigieburn and Great Barrier Island. We will travel to Craigieburn to see the fantastic pest control work DOC has undertaken in the area. Bring your walking shoes.
