At www.SostainabiliTank.info – in “About Us”  we say it all the time:

Our definition of Sustainable Development is: GREEN DEVELOPMENT, HAPPINESS, and PROSPERITY.

We humbly take serious the following dictums:

“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”
(Albert Einstein 1879-1955)

“I have never met a man so ignorant that I couldn’t learn something from him.”
(Galileo Galilei 1564-1642)

“I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.”
(Socrates 469 B.C.-399 B.C.)

“The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”
(Albert Einstein)

================================================

It is thus –

GREEN DEVELOPMENT, HAPPINESS, and PROSPERITY”

rather then the original –

“ENVIRONMENT, SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT, and ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT” –

the compromise that the Brundtland Commission of 1987 and the following Global Summit of 1992 – the original UN Conference on the Environment and Development – were able to pass at the UN. We suggest that in the redo of the basic concept at the RIO+20 it should be changed to this more basic and clearer definition.
