We are living on this planet (and using its resources) as if we had another one to go to. We need to learn to live on this earth, and do business, sustainably – meaning “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Saint Peter’s Sustainability Week is a celebration of the concepts of social justice, care of the earth, and long term thinking (People, Planet, Profit) that might just save what is here now. Come see the penguin, attend the speakers’ panels, watch the movies, and participate in the activities during Saint Peter’s Sustainability Celebration Week. Let us learn how future generations can enjoy what is here now and should always be.
