Definition:

Terms like sustainability, global sustainability, sustainable future and sustainable development are used to label this international issue. In this document, the term sustainability will be used to include all these labels.

The initial literature search uncovered more than 200 definitions attempting to describe an area that we are still learning about. These definitions led us to four interrelated areas of sustainability:

  • The well-being of people now and in the future
  • Caring for the environment
  • Wise economic decisions
  • Governance that ensures certain prudent actions are taken.

Aims:

  • To adopt sustainable living and learning practices within the school
  • To reduce our annual energy consumption to below 250 kilowatt hours or 900 mega joules per student
  • To reduce annual water consumption to below four kilolitres per student
  • To increase biodiversity within the school
  • To reduce our total waste going to landfill each year to below 0.3m3 per student.
