This book has presented different views of sustainability within different contexts: education, business, media, politics, and of course, the natural environment. As Spindler’s chapter has illustrated, the concept of sustainability has evolved over time shifting its meaning within varying conditions. Currently, sustainability’s meaning is being affected by the unstable global economy and the growth of the technology industry.
