Dazed and confused over sustainability

  • Comment

I am a subscriber and regular reader of the AJ. For a number of years a lot of articles have contained the word 'sustainable'.

Could someone define the word when is it used?

I get very confused over the house-price market in London not being sustainable? house-price increases not being sustainable? sustainable urban generation? 'sustainability body backs manifesto'.

What is sustainable? Six months, one year, five years, 10 years, or forever? Or does it mean something else? I love the magazine, though.
