“Sustainable Development in Ireland sets out the challenges and options to ensure that quality of life and general well-being can be improved and sustained. Translating these goals is simple. It starts with each individual, in the community, taking a first step. Many people are already contributing to a sustainable future in their day to day lives. Many others only need to make small adjustments to everyday actions to reach the Sustainable Development goals. Education and awareness initiatives can help us meet these Goals”. Tidy Towns Ireland.
“The EU Next Steps for a Sustainable European Future 2030 is committed to development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
