In this post, the main concepts of sustainability and environmentalism will be discussed as these terms are usually confused and substituted for each other. Undoubtedly, there is a connection between these terms but sustainability touches on more than just the environment. Finally, it will focus on providing with practical examples courtesy of Natural Habitats to clarify the difference.
Environmentalism consists of a social movement regarding environment conservation and preservation that strives to persuade or induce the political acceptance process by lobbying, activism as well as education for protecting natural resources and eco-systems. It aims to control pollution and protect biodiversity by focusing on balancing the various natural systems by becoming more earth friendly. Environmentalism and environmental concerns are often represented by the color green.
Sustainability, in contrast to the environmentalism, represents the idea that human society should operate by utilizing industrial and biological processes that can be sustained indefinitely; this implies that those processes are cyclically rather than linearly oriented. As a basic concept, sustainability focuses on creating a better world and not compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs by embracing three core aspects: environment, economy and social equity.
Sustainability encompasses environmentalism to a certain degree as one of the critical factors to ensure the sustainability of natural resources through environmental conservation and preservation.
