Sustainable development is a process of meeting human development goals while sustaining the ability of natural systems to continue to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services upon which the economy and society depends. While the modern concept of sustainable development is derived most strongly from the 1987 Brundtland Report, it is rooted in earlier ideas about sustainable forest management and twentieth century environmental concerns. The videos below provide detailed descriptions of the SDGs and how achieveing these goals can drastically help to improve the overall quality of life to any community across the world. For more details, please refer to the UN SDGs website.
