Sustainability is a term used in the most diverse contexts, from fashion to economic investment, through culture or food.
This concept is often confused (and only related) to environmental sustainability. But it’s not just that. It is much more than the concern for the environment.
It’s trying to ensure that future generations will have access to the same resources that we have today.
