The health of our communities is directly influenced by the surrounding environment and how we live, work, eat and play. Sustainability gives a systematic approach that extends the scope of understanding to how our communities are influenced by the complex interaction of the environment, people, economy, and spirituality. Taking care of our environment is an extension of caring for ourselves and is essential for the future health of our communities.
