What is sustainability?

The “The roots go back far into the past. The Freiberg chief Hans Carl von Carlowitz (1645-1714) is often treated as the” father “of sustainability, and he transferred the idea of ​​sustainability to forestry According to Carlowitz, only as much should be cut down in a forest as the forest can naturally regenerate in the foreseeable future. The principle of sustainability should therefore ensure that a natural system is preserved in its essential properties in the long term. With this approach, was laid the foundation for sustainable thinking and acting. ” (Lexicon of Sustainability, 2015)

This principle, which is more than 300 years old, can be transferred to all the other fields of today. Be it fishing, waste production or general environmental change and destruction by humans. As long as we as humanity do not stop blindly consuming and start to be mindful of nature, the path we are currently on will not change. We can already see the consequences very clearly today: rising sea levels, extinction of species, air and water pollution, to name just a few examples. That is why it is all the more important that each individual thinks about what consequences they will create with their actions. The change starts with you. Be The Change You Want To See.

What can I do?

As is so often the case when faced with major challenges, you feel paralyzed and don’t really know what to do. It is similar in the case of sustainable action. Does what you do have an effect at all if none of the others change their behavior? The answer is YES! But where do you start and where do you stop? We are trying to approach this question together and want to give a few practical suggestions on where to start.

1. Purchasing: Be careful what you buy. Be aware of your choices. Perhaps it is better to reach for the fresh vegetables from the region than for the ready-made dishes from distant countries. Not because we don’t like distant countries, but because the delivery routes and thus the CO2 footprint are low.

2. Shopping the second: See if you can buy your groceries as unpacked as possible. Less rubbish in your home also means less rubbish in nature.

3. Diet: You should always question yourself. So is his diet. Is it healthy for you to eat 4 eggs and a steak every day? It’s not about a radical vegetarian or vegan diet. One should look much more at where the animal products come from and whether the masses as they are consumed today really make sense. In the end, you have to be aware that behind every animal product there is also a living being, an animal.
