Sustainability, a career choice for the 21st century.
There are differences between Sustainability and Sustainable Development
Career Connections in the twenty-first century are changing. Titles of job positions are changing and new job positions are becoming more prevalent. Considering new jobs offers different choices.
According to Maryville University, we learn the difference in the definitions of Sustainability and Sustainable Development. Below is an except from their article: Maryville University: Sustainability vs. Sustainable Development.
“Definitions: Sustainability vs. Sustainable Development
Sustainability and sustainable development are often used interchangeably. Both speak to the danger of consuming resources faster than they can be replenished. However, a close look at sustainability vs. sustainable development reveals nuances that differentiate them.
Sustainability is a broad term that describes managing resources without depleting them for future generations. This concept goes beyond environmental sustainability, which concerns earth’s natural resources, to include economic and social sustainability, which relate to meeting people’s current economic and social needs without compromising future generations.
Sustainable development describes the processes for improving long-term economic well-being and quality of life without compromising future generations’ ability to meet their needs.
Individuals with a comprehensive understanding of these two essential concepts can help support society’s current needs and plan for the future. Professionals in the sustainability field can use their knowledge to help organizations integrate the principles of sustainability and sustainable development into their operations. They can also guide government and business leaders in developing sustainability goals, defining sustainability success, and assessing the effects of their decisions. Their actions can make an impact on equity, responsibility, and social justice.”
There are interesting job titles for these positions and many sound very interesting for possible career choices. We know how important these types of positions are and will continue to be important as the future rolls on. I hope you take an opportunity to look into various alternative training programs.
What Is A Circular Economy?
Thanks to all the responsible businesses for working hard to find solutions to problems that we need solved. Sustainability Actions by all of us, impacts the planet.
Responsible action is necessary. We love living on this planet together, with friends and family. We depend upon Mother Nature and, therefore, we need to alleviate the impact we cause.
The future is bringing new options for the products we use everyday. There are brilliant minds discovering alternative methods of producing what we need to survive. Time will tell how long that will take to not need to continue with current materials we use.
In the meantime, we appreciate companies doing all they can to not take away, destroy or incinerate the resources they are extracting and the environment around them. Changes can be accomplished with the freedom to create, develop and implement new ideas.
Jobs with a purpose are so rewarding. Consider Sustainability and creating a Circular Environment on this planet. Respect for all living creatures, including the planet, is necessary for sustainability. From humans to the smallest being of life was created with purpose.
We should always show gratitude to the one that made us, and for the life around us.
