Sustainability

A Sustainable Future for Hampshire

Sustainability is relevant to all of us, all the time. There are consequences for every decision we make; how we travel, what we eat, how we shop, what we throw-away. Such decisions can have negative, neutral or positive impacts. The challenge for us all is to make the right choices.  

“It's our planet and really…there’s no real point in having a super intelligent life form on the planet if the intelligent life form just means the planet goes away. …we’ve got to make it a good planet…for all the other creatures as well…if it wasn’t for all those creatures we probably wouldn’t exist.”

Pupil, Bartley Junior School (Quote taken from the County Council's film Hampshire, You, Me and Sustainability)

These pages explain what sustainability is, what Hampshire County Council is doing and what we can all do as individuals.
