OHIAS' mission is to educate and empower people everywhere to live responsibly, just and sustainable as our natural world requires. We believe and many will agree sustainable communities are the foundation stones and life blood of a sustainable planet.
Question of our day.
Are we not obligated knowing all we know about ourselves and our natural world to live responsibly, just and sustainable as our natural world requires.
SUSTAINABILITY A LIFESTYLE
1 able to be maintained at a certain rate or level – conserving an ecological balance by avoiding depletion of natural resources
OHIAS believes sustainability is not so much about what one can buy like an electric car, it's more about how one lives (lifestyle) within our planet's finite capacity to support and sustain life indefinitely. Today many in our world are consuming many times more than our planet can support while some are left to forage through waste bins and landfills to survive. This and more is unjust and unconscionable. Our world today is already threatened by excessive consumption and depletion, pollution (destruction)and inequality. True sustainability translates into an improved quality of life (well-being): richer, fuller, happier and healthier life for all. This is what we must work towards this goal with the greatest urgency, creating sustainable communities.
We (our world) are already consuming far more than is sustainably and our numbers and consumption are soaring to new heights.
We need to embrace change today as an opportunity to improve quality of life for all inhabitants not just the rich.
