As I read the postings on this list, I am stuck by how far afield many of them are from the issues that were raised in OUR COMMON FUTURE, the UN report which launched the sustainability movement and the reason why the UN designated this decade January 2005 to December 2015 the Decade of Sustainable Education. Although many people quote the reports definition of sustainable development as being meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. I'm curious how many people who are interested in sustainability have actually read the report?
