Sustainable Place I
A sustainable place is one in which ecological integrity and basic human needs are concurrently maintained over generations. Sustainable place focus on basic human needs: food, water, health, housing, energy for cooking and heat (11, 3). Good roads, education, employment, income level are not issues on sustainability. Adaptability to changing conditions, not constancy is the main feature in sustainability (11).
