"What is Sustainability" presents an introduction to the catch word of the decade. During this presentation we will examine: why sustainability has suddenly become so popular; what exactly sustainability is and what is, or should be, encompassed in its definition; why we should care about sustainability at all; and what exactly can we do to incorporate more sustainable practices into our own lives, workplaces and companies.
