Social eco-development

Social eco-development is education and upbringing of humans, raise of their eco-consciousness and formation of the skills that enable them to live in harmony with nature and society and to improve the environment and their health, as well as popularization of the sustainable development ideas.

Sustainable development

Sustainable development is a pattern of growth in which resource use aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for generations to come.

In 1987 the World Commission on Environment and Development in its report «Our Common Future» has laid the foundation for a new triune concept of sustainable (eco-socio-economic) development. The UN World Summit on Sustainable Development (intergovernmental, governmental and scientific forum) in 2002 reaffirmed the commitment of the entire world community to the ideas of sustainable development that is essential for long-term satisfaction of basic human needs while preserving all the systems of the Earth.
