How can we meet the needs of today without diminishing the capacity of future generations to meet theirs? Sustainable development implies a broad view of human welfare, a long term perspective about social development. Write an essay which should cover:

As can be seen from the above drawings, the father has planted a small tree that grows into a big one and is left to his son to enjoy. Years later, his son sits under the big tree enjoying its shade.
In social development, we should not over utilize our natural resources, as in the case of forests. A reasonable use of forests and reforestation are the best choices in the long run. Human beings should plan ahead when it comes to social development. Even though trees are in short demand today, we must still keep the deforestation under control, for we do not want to eliminate all of our forests, which are essential to our existence. Reforestation is another wise practice. We may not fully benefit from planting trees for the time being, but we must continue doing so, since it will benefit later generations.
From the point of view of sustainable development, we have the responsibility to ensure that future generations have enough natural resources to use and are not penalized for the shortsightedness of present day decision makers. In other words, we should not use up our natural resources just to meet our own present day needs, while ignoring the future of our planet.

In the above cartoons, a young woman happily eats bananas and casually discards the peels on the street, unaware of the fact that such actions not only pollute the environment but also pose a danger to others. In the next illustration a disabled man struggles to properly dispose of the trash she has left behind.
Being well dressed is of great importance in keeping a good appearance. The way a person is dressed helps him to have a good appearance, which conveys his confidence and attitudes towards life. However, we should always bear this in mind: dont judge a person by his appearance. Ones confidence and good impression on others does not usually develop from the way one dresses or looks, but the inner qualities one possesses. Because of this, the old man is displaying a more beautiful virtue even though he is disabled and somewhat ugly physically compared with the young girl.
No doubt beauty usually refers to what appeals to the eyes. A nice, pretty girl is regarded as beautiful. A bunch of vigorous flowers are also considered as beautiful. A splendid waterfall coming down from a mountain is as well looked upon as beautiful. However, beauty also refers to what appeals to the mind. The virtues of the Chinese people are regarded as beautiful, because they have helped to produce such a magnificent culture in the world. In a word, we should not only pay attention to our physical appearance, but also improve our heart and soul.
