Sustainable Development

Sustainability is a word that is thrown around a lot these days, from sustainable food production to sustainable lifestyles. But what does this term really mean? It is defined as having long term resilience in a specific area, whether that is economics, lifestyle, environment, etc.

One interesting concept is the is sustainable development. This is the idea of developing buildings, communities, with the long term in mind and minimal ecological impact.  I have provided an interesting video from the TED website that depicts a idealistic view on sustainable development.

This video is an interesting take take on sustainable development or as Bjarke Ingels says "Hedonistic Sustainability," and shows some intuitive, innovative ways that communities could be developed in the future.
