Understanding Our Mission

To further understand Llacuna’s mission, it is important to loosely define the terms “community initiatives” and “sustainable development“.

» Sustainable development is a process for meeting human development goals while sustaining the ability of natural systems to continue to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services upon which the economy and society depend. While the modern concept of sustainable development is derived most strongly from the 1987 Brundtland Report, it is rooted in earlier ideas about sustainable forest management and twentieth century environmental concerns. As the concept developed, it has shifted to focus more on economic development, social development and environmental protection.

Sustainable development is the organizing principle for sustaining finite resources necessary to provide for the needs of future generations of life on the planet. It is a process that envisions a desirable future state for human societies in which living conditions and resource-use continue to meet human needs without undermining the “integrity, stability and beauty” of natural biotic systems.

» Community initiatives is defined as an idea, goal or objective made public by three or more members of the community that is generally agreed upon by the community to provide a positive outcome for someone or some thing.
