We live so caught up in the frenzy of daytime, in the immensity of work that every day we have to do, that we don't always realize what's right under our noses. Every day we hear about sustainability, the urgent need for change, but do we really know what we need to do?

Today knowledge resources and solutions in the area of technology are already more than enough for a new economic system to be possible – environmentally and socially sustainable. But how? The options are more than many, but we can start with the simplest: social accountability of companies – through forms of financing that take into account social and environmental criteria – and the empowerment of people, for example, are two major steps on the path to change. Promoting knowledge is as important as swapping the plastic bag for cloth. Giving information and allowing everyone to have access to this information is essential for sustainable development to be possible.
