Sustainable Development quotes by Tom Mulcair
#3. An NDP government will establish, in law, clear criteria for resource extraction and transportation based on the principles of sustainable development, which include internalizing all pollution costs and putting a price on carbon. In our day and age there is no longer any way around it. Any new energy project requires a thorough, credible environmental assessment process, based on criteria of sustainable development and social acceptability. We don't have one in Canada, because the Conservatives have gutted all the relevant existing legislation and reduced the staff responsible for enforcing it. #Quote by Tom Mulcair

Sustainable Development quotes by Jeffrey D. Sachs
#17. measures like GDP per person give only a rough reflection of the overall level of wellbeing of an individual or a nation. But for sustainable development we are interested in raising human wellbeing, not just in raising income, still less in a mad race for more riches for people who are already rich. Therefore, it is important to ask how we can best measure wellbeing (or life satisfaction) beyond GDP per capita. #Quote by Jeffrey D. Sachs
Sustainable Development quotes by Angela Merkel
#18. Climate change knows no borders. It will not stop before the Pacific islands and the whole of the international community here has to shoulder a responsibility to bring about a sustainable development. #Quote by Angela Merkel

Sustainable Development quotes by Sha Zukang

Sustainable Development quotes by James E. Lovelock
#30. The totalitarian greens, sometimes called ecofascists, would like to see most other humans eliminated in genocide and so leave a perfect Earth for them alone. At the other end of the spectrum are those who would like to see universal human welfare and rights, and somehow hope that luck, Gaia or sustainable development will allow this dream to come true. Greens could be defined as those who have sensed the deterioration of the natural world and would like to do something about it. They share a common environmentalism but differ greatly in the means for its achievement. #Quote by James E. Lovelock
Sustainable Development quotes by Ellen MacArthur
#31. Rethinking the future: It is a profound challenge, at the end of an era of cheap oil and materials to rethink and redesign how we produce and consume; to reshape how we live and work, or even to imagine the jobs that will be needed for transition #Quote by Ellen MacArthur

Sustainable Development quotes by Tony Blair
#35. I also, as I think most people do, have a healthy instinct that if we upset the balance of nature, we are in all probability going to suffer a reaction. With world growth, and population as it is, this reaction must increase #Quote by Tony Blair

Sustainable Development quotes by Jennifer A. Elliott
#38. Discussions of sustainability as a political process have been taken up by a number of the social sciences centred on questions of power and outcomes for particular groups of people, across space and time. In short, this work raises sustainable development as a moral concept that seeks to define a 'fair and just' development (Starkey and Walford, 2001). The notion of 'environmental justice' is now a prominent part of contemporary discussions of the meaning and practice of sustainable development (see #Quote by Jennifer A. Elliott
Sustainable Development quotes by Jacqueline Kasun
#39. The obvious pollution occurring in many places - worst of all, in the planned societies- has encouraged the growth of the environmental movement, which, however, as shown in previous chapters, has an agenda that goes far beyond clean-up and beautification, far beyond the stewardship of nature that is commanded by ancient religious tradition. Embracing the "biospheric vision" in the "spirit of deep ecology", the movement sees human beings as the chief enemy in the struggle on behalf of a deified Nature. The environmental movement, therefore, is the perfect vehicle for population control. It is popular - people do love trees and animals and beautiful scenery - and it is unequivocal in its devotion to reducing human numbers. The environmental agencies of the United Nations, with their chilling blueprints for "demographic transition" and a standardless, undefined but totally planned and controlled "sustainable development", combine the fervor of nature worship with the lack of accountability of an unelected, international bureaucracy. #Quote by Jacqueline Kasun
Sustainable Development quotes by Nick Offerman
#40. I became very interested [in philosophy] after attending the U.N. Conference on sustainable development in Brazil.I'm very concerned about climate change and the world reaching a tipping point. And, I see other people who really just want to survive to make it to the next election, rather than making means of change. #Quote by Nick Offerman
Sustainable Development quotes by Jonathon Porritt
#41. The core values that underpin sustainable development - interdependence, empathy, equity, personal responsibility and intergenerational justice - are the only foundation upon which any viable vision of a better world can possibly be constructed #Quote by Jonathon Porritt

#42. Sustainable development: Holding our world in trust for our children #Quote by Michael Meacher

Sustainable Development quotes by Kofi Annan
#45. Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development and building good governance. #Quote by Kofi Annan
Sustainable Development quotes by Alfred-Maurice De Zayas

Sustainable Development quotes by Gaylord Nelson
#48. If we human beings learn to see the intricacies that bind one part of a natural system to another and then to us, we will no longer argue about the importance of wilderness protection, or over the question of saving endangered species, or how human communities must base their economic futures - not on short-term exploitation - but on long-term, sustainable development. #Quote by Gaylord Nelson
Sustainable Development quotes by Rosa Koire
#49. The Neo-Feudalism of UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is reviving serfdom as the condition of the future. If you let it. #Quote by Rosa Koire

Sustainable Development quotes by Donella Meadows

#59. Humankind has the science and technology to destroy itself or to provide prosperity for all. But while science offers us these opportunities, science will not make that choice for us. Only the moral power of a world acting as a community can #Quote by Margaret Beckett

Sustainable Development quotes by Alan Thein Durning

Sustainable Development quotes by Fred Hoyle
#64. Once a photograph of the Earth, taken from outside, is available, once the sheer isolation of the Earth becomes known, a new idea as powerful as any in history will be let loose. #Quote by Fred Hoyle
Sustainable Development quotes by Don Johnston
#65. 'Sustainable Development' is an oxymoron. 'Development' in all it's senses entails expansion and wanting more. Continual expansion and wanting more are unsustainable. Globally we are approaching the point when the only sustainable way forward is to want less. Indeed, the choice element may be removed from us and we will just have to have less. In the meantime we still have some choices about how to influence our future #Quote by Don Johnston
Sustainable Development quotes by Rodolfo Peon
#66. A violent society is an underdeveloped society. #Quote by Rodolfo Peon
Sustainable Development quotes by Martin O'Malley
#67.

Sustainable Development quotes by Margaret Beckett
#68. Many unsustainable behaviours are locked-in and made 'normal', not just by the way that we produce and consume, but by the absence of easy alternatives #Quote by Margaret Beckett
Sustainable Development quotes by Dan Shechtman
#69. Sustainable development requires human ingenuity. People are the most important resource. #Quote by Dan Shechtman
Sustainable Development quotes by Rodolfo Peon
#70. I think is inherent in humans to be driven by a cause. However, we must be able to differentiate between sensationalism and true facts. Otherwise we risk to sacrifice many things in life for the wrong cause; which may even include our own happiness. #Quote by Rodolfo Peon
Sustainable Development quotes by Ha-Joon Chang
#71. Sometimes it is in the long-run interest of the business sector to restrict the freedom of individual firms so that they do not destroy the common pool of resources that all of them need, such as natural resources or the labour force. #Quote by Ha-Joon Chang
Sustainable Development quotes by Wangari Maathai
#72. Today we are faced with a challenge that calls for a shift in our thinking, so that humanity stops threatening its life-support system. We are called to assist the Earth to heal her wounds and in the process heal our own - indeed to embrace the whole of creation in all its diversity, beauty and wonder. Recognizing that sustainable development, democracy and peace are indivisible is an idea whose time has come #Quote by Wangari Maathai
Sustainable Development quotes by Nico Tortorella
#73. I went to art school in Chicago for a year at Columbia College. I had this whole master plan of getting into sustainable development and green architecture and construction, so I wanted to go to business school and then get my masters in construction and development. #Quote by Nico Tortorella

Sustainable Development quotes by Ian Christie

Sustainable Development quotes by Michel De Montaigne

Sustainable Development quotes by Wangari Maathai
#82. People need open space. People need to bring their children into an area where they can play without restriction." And I was told, "This is development."

They can do without concrete. But they cannot do without fresh air. #Quote by Wangari Maathai
Sustainable Development quotes by Andrew Nikiforuk

Sustainable Development quotes by Adam Johnson
#85. Life's full of events - they occur and you adjust, you roll and move on. But at some point you realize some events are actually developments. You realize there's a big plan out there you know nothing about, and a development is a first step in that new direction. Sometimes things feel like big-time developmens but in time you adjust, you find a new way and realize they didn't throw you off course, they didn't change you. They were just events.
The tricky part is telling the difference between the two. #Quote by Adam Johnson
Sustainable Development quotes by Thomas Lloyd Qualls
#86. The bright side of the moon could not exist without the half wrapped in shadow. A half-life is not substantial, not sustainable. You cannot cut out half your heart and live. #Quote by Thomas Lloyd Qualls
Sustainable Development quotes by John Holdren
#87. Reliable and affordable energy is essential for meeting basic human needs and fueling economic growth, but many of the most difficult and dangerous environmental problems at every level of economic development arise from the harvesting, transport, processing, and conversion of energy #Quote by John Holdren

Sustainable Development quotes by Alison Gopnik
#90. In fact, our brains are most active, and hungriest, in the first few years of life. Even as adults, our brains use a lot of energy: when you just sit still, about 20 percent of your calories go to your brain. One-year-olds use much more than that, and by four, fully 66 percent of calories go to the brain, more than at any other period of development. In fact, the physical growth of children slows down in early childhood to compensate for the explosive activity of their brains. #Quote by Alison Gopnik
Sustainable Development quotes by Paul Polman
#91. I don't think our fiduciary duty is to put shareholders first. I say the opposite. What we firmly believe is that if we focus our company on improving the lives of the world's citizens and come up with genuine sustainable solutions, we are more in synch with consumers and society and ultimately this will result in good shareholder returns. #Quote by Paul Polman
Sustainable Development quotes by Michael Hyatt
#92. Gratitude is where every positive attitude starts. #Quote by Michael Hyatt
Sustainable Development quotes by Frederick Lenz
#93. In terms of spiritual development, it's not a big deal whether you have sex or not, the question is more of who you have sex with and what their energy is doing to you. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Sustainable Development quotes by Nana Awere Damoah
#94. It is only by our hands that we can build this continent to the standard that we envy and admire in the advanced countries. #Quote by Nana Awere Damoah
Sustainable Development quotes by Thabo Mbeki
#95. China surely must be interested in a more stable, non-antagonistic relationship with the African continent precisely because of its own needs and therefore has to say: in our own interest, as China, it is necessary that we participate in the process of development of the African continent. #Quote by Thabo Mbeki
Sustainable Development quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#96. What I did not know yet about hunger, but would find out over the next twenty-one years, was that brilliant theorists of economics do not find it worthwhile to spend time discussing issues of poverty and hunger. They believe that these will be resolved when general economic prosperity increases. These economists spend all their talents detailing the process of development and prosperity, but rarely reflect on the origin and development of poverty and hunger. A a result, poverty continues. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Sustainable Development quotes by A.J. Flowers
#97. While every chapter should have goals to further the plot and delve our readers deeper into our world, there must be one goal above all else: Emotional Impact. #Quote by A.J. Flowers
Sustainable Development quotes by Tony Dovale
#98. Rethink Your Success Mindset: At the end of your life, the only things that really matter ... are matters of your heart. #Quote by Tony Dovale
Sustainable Development quotes by Angela Lynne Craig
#99. When we simplify, we are attending to our minds. Clear
minds lead to creativity, vision, health, and productivity. #Quote by Angela Lynne Craig
Sustainable Development quotes by Stella McCartney
#100. Depending on the season, between 20 and 30 percent of my collections contain some sort of eco or sustainable element, whether it's a beautiful organic fabric or a natural dye. And obviously I don't use animal skins or fur of any kind. #Quote by Stella McCartney
Sustainable Development quotes by Christopher Henry Dawson
#101. The events of the last forty years have inflicted such a blow to the self confidence of Western civilization and to the belief in progress which was so strong during the nineteenth century, that men tend to go too far in the opposite direction: in fact the modern world is experiencing the same kind of danger which was so fatal to the ancient world--the crisis of which Gilbert Murray writes in his Four Stages of Greek Religion as "The Loss of Nerve."
There have been signs of this in Western literature for a long time past, and it has already had a serious effect on Western culture an education. This is the typical tragedy of the intelligentsia as shown in nineteenth century Russia and often in twentieth century Germany: the case of a society or class devoting enormous efforts to higher education and to the formation of an intellectual elite and then finding that the final result of the system is to breed a spirit of pessimism and nihilism and revolt. There was something seriously wrong about an educational system which cancelled itself out in this way, which picked out the ablest minds in a society and subjected them to an intensive process of competitive development which ended in a revolutionary or cynical reaction against the society that produced it. But behind these defects of an over-cerebralized and over-competitive method of education, there is the deeper cause in the loss of the common spiritual background which unifies education with social life. For the liberal #Quote by Christopher Henry Dawson
Sustainable Development quotes by Ali Abdullah Saleh
#102. Democracy in Yemen did not stop, instead it is in a continuous development, there is no other way to follow rather than democracy, it is our national way for building up our country, it was not imposed on us by others. #Quote by Ali Abdullah Saleh
Sustainable Development quotes by Odd Nerdrum
#103. Everything is a meaningless struggle against nothing and when people say that the world has become a better place that is a false development-optimism. Nothing exists which ever becomes better. Everything stays the same. Somehow, there is nothing. That is so sad. Nothing to come to. Everything is an illusion. A very sweet illusion. #Quote by Odd Nerdrum
Sustainable Development quotes by Sarah Winter
#104. Before her was a man who wasted words on no one. If he said something, you could take the worth of his words to the bank. In her home was a man who had the skill and talent to be anyone and chose to be the best version of himself. #Quote by Sarah Winter
Sustainable Development quotes by Friedrich Engels
#105. Just as Darwin discovered the law of development of organic nature, so Marx discovered the law of development of human history: the simple fact, hitherto concealed by an overgrowth of ideology, that mankind must first of all eat, drink, have shelter and clothing, before it can pursue politics, science, art, religion, etc. #Quote by Friedrich Engels
Sustainable Development quotes by Jonathan Hickman
#106. I have an architecture degree; that's what my college degree is in. And that sucked. I started doing Web and CD-ROM development really early on, and then that grew into being an art director and doing advertising work. #Quote by Jonathan Hickman
Sustainable Development quotes by Antony Starr
#107. When you can't fix all your problems with your fists and the problems aren't solely physical, and you've got to deal with the emotional complexities of life and people, it's a really interesting development. #Quote by Antony Starr
Sustainable Development quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#108. Be the best of being. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Sustainable Development quotes by Criss Jami
#109. With too much pride a man cannot learn a thing. In and of itself, learning teaches you how foolish you are. #Quote by Criss Jami
Sustainable Development quotes by Linda Fisher Thornton
#110. There is no check-box for ethical leadership.
It is an ongoing individual and organizational journey.
We will never know everything that there is to know. #Quote by Linda Fisher Thornton
Sustainable Development quotes by Alfred-Maurice De Zayas
#111. In a world where millions of human beings live in extreme poverty, die of malnutrition and lack medical care, where pandemics continue to kill, it is imperative to pursue good faith disarmament negotiations and to shift budgets away from weapons production, war-mongering, surveillance of private persons and devote available resources to address global challenges including humanitarian relief, environmental protection, climate change mitigation and adaptation, prevention of pandemics, and the development of a green economy. #Quote by Alfred-Maurice De Zayas
Sustainable Development quotes by David Chilton
#112. The Christian goal for the world is the universal development of Biblical theocratic republics, in which every area of life is redeemed and placed under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the rule of God's law. #Quote by David Chilton
Sustainable Development quotes by Richard M. Nixon
#113. The developing coherence of Asian regional thinking is reflected in a disposition to consider problems and loyalties in regional terms, and to evolve regional approaches to development needs and to the evolution of a New World Order. #Quote by Richard M. Nixon
Sustainable Development quotes by Maria Montessori
#114. The child's conquests of independence are the basic steps in what is called his 'natural development'. #Quote by Maria Montessori

#115. Neither poverty nor wealth is in the wallet. They are all in the mind. #Quote by Ola Barnabas

#116. Free and just political institutions are absolutely essential to the progress and development both of the individual and of the race. #Quote by Hugh Price Hughes
Sustainable Development quotes by Alyssa Mastromonaco
#117. I have learned a lot about myself over the years, mostly because I was open to hearing feedback. I wear my emotions on my sleeve. I usually dislike someone before I like them. I'm sensitive - especially when I'm tired or feel I'm being misunderstood. This may sound like the "About Me" section on a bad online dating profile, but knowing this stuff has allowed me to keep my contacts, my reputation, and my sanity throughout a long and often stressful career. Being self-aware means knowing when you're about to act bad - and then not acting bad. #Quote by Alyssa Mastromonaco
Sustainable Development quotes by Jochen Zeitz
#118. Fashion is a logical place to start to raise awareness for sustainable causes. #Quote by Jochen Zeitz
Sustainable Development quotes by Sameh Elsayed
#119. When you find yourself thinking far from others ... .. When you are faced with the differences between you and the rest ... .. Know you found your uniqueness. #Quote by Sameh Elsayed
Sustainable Development quotes by Anton Chekhov
#120. Church and State, will, of course, go on for ever, in spite of the fact that it is impossible for them to mingle, and that the confusion of these elements cannot lead to any consistent or even normal results, for there is falsity at the very foundation of it. Compromise between the Church and State in such questions as, for instance, jurisdiction, is, to my thinking, impossible in any real sense. My clerical opponent maintains that the Church holds a precise and defined position in the State. I maintain, on the contrary, that the Church ought to include the whole State, and not simply to occupy a corner in it, and, if this is, for some reason, impossible at present, then it ought, in reality, to be set up as the direct and chief aim of the future development of Christian society! #Quote by Anton Chekhov

Sustainable Development quotes by Harun Yahya
#125. ... Because the staging of human embryos is complex,
owing to the continuous process of change during development,
it is proposed that a new system of classification could be developed
using the terms mentioned in the Qur'an and Sunnah. The proposed
system is simple, comprehensive, and conforms with present
embryological knowledge.287 (Dr. Keith L. Moore, Professor Emeritus,
Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Toronto) #Quote by Harun Yahya
Sustainable Development quotes by Buzz Aldrin
#126. Over the years, I think I've matured in my spiritual evolution and development to understand a bit more than the narrow religious thinking - to move beyond that through a sort of perfection of the grandiose nature of the universe, and how perfect it is it in its sense and how satisfied we should all be in our place in that. #Quote by Buzz Aldrin

Sustainable Development quotes by Angela Merkel

Sustainable Development quotes by John Pilger
#129. If development was measured not by gross national product, but a society's success in meeting the basic needs of its people, Vietnam would have been a model. That was its real "threat." From the defeat of the French at Dien Bien Phu in 1954 to 1972, primary and secondary school enrollment in the North increased sevenfold, from 700,000 to almost five million. In 1980, UNESCO estimated a literacy rate of 90 percent and school enrollment among the highest in Asia and throughout the Third World. #Quote by John Pilger
Sustainable Development quotes by Sameh Elsayed
