Sustainability is about meeting the needs of our communities without jeopardising the ability of future generations to meet their needs, and without degrading or destroying the natural systems on which we all depend.
Sustainability has four elements: environmental, economic, social and cultural sustainability. So when we talk about the idea of sustainable communities, we are talking about communities which exist without degrading the natural environment, which provide for ongoing economic resilience and which nurture healthy, creative and culturally diverse societies.
We have a vision for creating a sustainable future for far north Queensland and we are working to encourage this transition to a safe and prosperous future for our region.
Our work in this area includes the topics listed below.
