The SDC says goodbye – What next for sustainable Development?

The SDC says goodbye – What next for sustainable Development?

The Sustainable Development Commission will close its doors on 31 March 2010. But the great challenge of making our lives in the UK and around the world fairer and more sustainable goes on.

"Embedding sustainable development into the architecture of Government is essential if we are to tackle the biggest and most pressing issues of the day."
