The liberal approach demands sustainability say the Scots Lib Dems

Scottish Lib Dem Logo (http://www.scotlibdems.org.uk)We are trustees of a world, and a society, and must pass on a sustainable legacy which will benefit future generations.

The liberal approach demands sustainability. We know there are never quick fixes that can do the job of a long term solution.

Our belief in the empowerment of individuals is not limited to the current generation. Future generations have the same rights as we do to live their lives in the ways they choose. Climate change, pollution and the degradation of the natural world pose some of the greatest threats to the well-being and freedom of present and future generations that modern society has ever seen. We need to act at home and internationally to promote environmentally sustainable ways of doing things.

We are internationalists because some goals are too big for nation-states to achieve on their own. Climate change and a healthy environment are two.
