'Can Sustainable Development Work?'

A lecture today to be delivered by H.E. Ton Boon von Ochssee, the Ambassador of the Netherlands in Kuwait, at AUK in Salmiya 2pm today in the Multi-purpose Room. Open to the public.

Before arriving in Kuwait as Ambassador to Kuwait and Bahrain H.E. Ton Boon von Ochssee held the position of Ambassador at Large for Sustainable Development in the Netherlands.

LWDLIK- Would love to see Kuwait invest in sustainable development and a greener Kuwait.

Wiki- Sustainable development (SD) is a pattern of resource use, that aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for generations to come (sometimes taught as ELF-Environment, Local people, Future). The term was used by the Brundtland Commission which coined what has become the most often-quoted definition of sustainable development as development that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
