Individually and as a community there is lots that we can do to reduce our impact on the beautiful Mosman natural environment, both for the present community and future generations.
Ecological Sustainable Development is defined as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.
Mosman Council measured the ecological footprint of Mosman. On average, each resident of Mosman has an ecological footprint of 14.7 hectares. If everyone on earth had a footprint this size, we would need another seven earths to support us all.
