Sustainable development is a process that attains human development goals while sustaining the ability of natural systems to continually provide natural resources and ecosystem services upon which the economy and society depends. The focus is more on economic development, social development and environmental protection.
THE SOCIETY FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Formed by a group of like-minded individuals with the intention to make an impact in the lives of the common man, SSD has been conceived with a common belief: “Reduce Carbon Footprints by Changing the Consciousness of the Human Society”. In these technologically advanced times that we live in, it is of utmost importance for the entire community to stay updated with the sustainable advancements and achievements of successful people around the world, at the same time staying grounded within the values and morals of Sustainable living. We hope to inspire and motivate our fellow people for the good of all.
Considering the spirit of today’s human behavior within communities, we find an alarming level of degradation and decomposing – ranging from degradation of personal ethics to conceited and selfish social interactions; and not to mention the unethical practices of the people in their day-to-day life. Being untruthful is so common that being truthful seems to be a disadvantage and harmful – cunningness is replacing intellect, commitment is demanding compensation, passion is conceited, desires are many.
All this is due to the fact that, we humans started mis-utilizing our natural resources to the extent that many species are on the verge of extinction
We humans have put aside the qualities and values of sustainable development system – a system that prescribes the building of the perfect sustainable society. Right now the deterioration of society is to such a drastic extent that it is high time a wave of reform hits. A wave of sustainable ethics is desperately needed to wash and launder the hearts and minds of the youth, the standard-bearers of tomorrow.
Essentially, the need of the hour is to:
- Inculcate honesty and truthfulness among the youth
- Inculcate a sense of discipline and dedication
- Inculcate a sense of responsibility towards the society
- Inculcate a neutrality towards discrimination
- Inculcate sustainable living practices
- Come forward to help the needy – in whatever kind, be it in livelihood, education, profession, etc.
‘Sustainability Literacy Mission’
One of the main objectives of SSD is to increase the literacy rate among the common people. SLM program aims to:
- organize weekend workshops with people from poor sections of community especially daily wage earners.
- regular representation to the state and central governments of India on sustainable issues.
- distribution of Sustainable Living Kits to the poor on a regular basis.
- gather detailed statistics related to current environment issues and common citizen’s knowledge of Sustainable Development. (Sustainable India Ride)
- work with experts in holding workshops and sessions in rural and remote areas.
- free university-orientation evening classes for employed youth who work in odd jobs.
Support IDEA (Reduce Carbon Footprints)
The core objective of SSD is to reduce the individual carbon footprints which are devastating the entire society. We intend to address the following with IDEA.
- Create awareness in the society by holding inspirational workshops under the guidance of renowned socio-reformist and environmentalist.
- Screen documentaries reflecting the impact of evils of carbon footprints.
- Encourage and recognize such youth who can voluntarily work for conservation initiatives.

Intention is to create awareness among youth and clarify their unanswered questions.
