Nafissian, Mitra, Ed.
Sustainable development is comprehensive, promoting balanced planning for economic development and protection of natural resoures. It takes into account both the long-term and short-term environmental impact of society's actions. This seminar stressed that the most important component in achieving sustainable development is the inclusion of all sectors in cooperative decision making; business, government, scientific/academic, and civic. By working together, these sectors can end the traditional advocacy model through dialogue and joint problem solving. The seminar's objective was to bring sustainable development to the public's attention and to initiate dialogue among key representatives of the various sectors. This document includes the presentation made by 29 representatives from government, corporations, non-government organizations, and future leaders on the topic of sustainable development. (Author/CW)
