Moving in the direction of the goal of sustainability necessitates fundamental changes in human outlooks and activities. Evolution in this direction is thus critically dependent on edification and public awareness.
The idea of sustainable development is not a simple one, and there is no road map to prescribe how we should proceed. Yet time is short, and we are called upon to act without delay.
We must move ahead now, in a spirit of exploration and experimentation and with the broadest possible range of partners, so as to contribute through education to correcting trends that place in jeopardy our common future.
