The Origins of the term Sustainable Development

The Origins of the term Sustainable Development

In declaring an end to the status quo, we are simultaneously admitting and choosing to move towards sustainability, human-focused efforts, and ecological endeavors that uplift the human-Earth symbiotic relationship.

Intelligence in the Birds’ Nests: Why Humane Entrepreneurship is the Future

Intelligence in the Birds’ Nests: Why Humane Entrepreneurship is the Future

As we move into our digital future, we, as a global community, are experiencing unprecedented levels of activity as well as a simultaneous rise in the average person’s uncertainty of their environment. These have been intensified by the fast-paced environments that we have created to shape and nurture future entrepreneurs. The rise in mental health struggles for entrepreneurs and our harmful effect on the environment suggest that this fast-paced environment in which we have sought to nurture entrepreneurial talents is in no way sustainable. During a recent ICSB Knowledge Exchange webinar, Dr. Taura presented his futuristic vision of a digital revolution which includes humane entrepreneurship.

JICSB Special Issue: Sustainable Entrepreneurship

JICSB Special Issue: Sustainable Entrepreneurship

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the United Nations in 2015, addresses the most pressing challenges of our time, such as climate change and COVID-19, social injustice, human rights, and economic growth. Incorporating the sustainable development goals (SDGs) into society’s fabric is essential for just and equitable sustainable development for all. The SDGs purpose is to stimulate everyone, from governments, businesses, NGOs, citizens, and other stakeholders, to accelerate actions that benefit the people and the planet, by fostering actions and partnerships at all levels, so no one is left behind. And since MSMEs are the foundation of our economies and society, they are at the critical leading edge of the UN’s sustainable development initiative.
