Since 1987, after publication of the United Nations (UN) Commission for the Environment and Development, the term sustainable development has been broadly employed and incorporated in visions of the world's future. Despite the many efforts to put this vision into practice and although its use represents one of the most significant contributions to the debate on the environment, its acceptance as a guide for necessary changes on a global scale will require great effort.
