Sustainable Development

The guiding principle of sustainable development is, development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Sustainable development recognises the interdependence environmental, social and economic systems and promotes equality and justice through people empowerment and a sense of global citizenship. Whilst we cannot be sure what the future may bring, a preferable future is a more sustainable one.

NGS support the guiding principle and will make contributions where possible, we are currently supporting projects that contribute to the sustainable communities, active communities and social exclusion policies of sustainable development.

NGS currently has a fund available for projects which satisfy its sustainable development objectives. Please see grant applications page for more information.
