One of the most widely accepted definitions of sustainability is "to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs".

 


This means that humans must use the Earth's resources at a rate that they can be replenished, but there is clear scientific evidence that humanity is not currently living sustainability. As a role model for our community and state, LSU is in a unique position to lead the way in creating a sustainable future here at home and for our planet. (Definition from Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development: Our Common Future, UN Documents)

    Land Ethic Leaders

     

    LSU's SCURRE committee members were recently trained as Land Ethic Leaders by the Aldo Leopold Foundation.  To explore, renew, and deepen your own personal connections to the land, a good starting point is the film Green Fire.  

     

     

    Green Fire

     

    The first full-length documentary film ever made about legendary environmentalist Aldo Leopold, Green Fire highlights Leopold’s extraordinary career, tracing how he shaped and influenced the modern environmental movement. Leopold remains relevant today, inspiring projects all over the country that connect people and land.
