Sustainable development: training future leaders

Congratulations MacArthur Foundation for taking up sustainable development as a mission. In my opinion the sustainable development, besides other aspects, involves the following:

(a) Conservation of the natural resources

(b) Process developments, standards and controls to minimise the industrial and anthropogenic pollution and greenhouse gas emission

(c) Techniques of recapturing and recycling the pollutants and green house gases

In the first place there is a need to create an awareness about these aspects in the general public.
