The Brundtland Commission stated that “Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

Sustainable Guernsey covers the way we live and the changes we can make to lessen our impact on Earth’s resources so that the Earth can continue to provide for future generations.

Climate change will compromise the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.   Human induced climate change is caused by excessive greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel burning.  World human population growth and increasing affluence is depleting natural resources at an unprecedented rate.

    In my recent local Council news in West Sussex I read that a state of the art mechanical biological treatment facility will be operated over a 25 year period.
    This document is the marketing PDF, please bare in mind that this is now being put into place and be a working alternative to burning.

    The point I wanted to make is that there is yet another area using a green method to deal with the none recyclable waste rather that burn it.

    What has happened to the environmental lobby in Guernsey?
    Around the incinerator debate there were furious, imaginative and energetic mobilisations. Around sewage into the sea-not much. At the States election barely a word. Are we all focused on our own pet topics, have we run out of energy (no pun intended), or …….?
    The disability lobby is very effective, organised and produces results.

    when we are all supposed to be worried about our bees and other insects, why are we cutting down all the flowering wild flowers growing in our hedgerows and gardens. surely it makes more sense to do it after the flowers have seeded.

    Here’s a challenge. How do we make the transport strategy fun. For inspiration see this link
