We keep thinking that sustainability is just another development topic in our countries. Today, it is the only topic. Daily we see that everything is sustainability: the water we drink, the air we breathe. It is for this reason that sustainability is no longer an option for our societies but instead it is our only destiny. However, sustainability cannot be conceived in isolation of other social dimensions. Today, a sustainable society cannot exist without citizen empowerment. This requires a change in our nations’ constitutions and a radical reform of the processes of democratic participation. Sustainability is not just a word, it is a goal, a value, a state of being, and it is an experience. Without a high level of our collective conscience being internally and externally empowered, it will be impossible to achieve a sustainable society.
