Thinking about the future is a challenge for us. Sketching future lines of a sustainable development involves being creative, protecting our natural living conditions, correctly assessing the impact of our actions and enabling future generations to chose their own life style freely.
Specified goals, indicators and programmes are important political tools for a sustainable development strategy. The real challenge, however, is the interplay of creativity and realism – of rational and emotional visions, values and benchmarks. A sustainability-oriented perspective is a cultural achievement.
