1.1. A sustainable society
In The Alternative, we work every day to create a sustainable society. The world needs nations who take sustainable transition seriously and show the way to a vibrant, creative and inclusive society. This is the society of the future, and our ambition is to create a Denmark who dares to take the lead in that direction.
Sustainability is about being wise. It is about long-term thinking and taking responsibility through action. It is about respect and cooperation between people and nature, as well as amongst people. The Alternative fundamentally believes that a sustainable society is a considerate society that does not prey on either animals, the environment or people.
A sustainable society is about finding balance. It is the balance between our consumption of natural resources and nature’s ability to restore itself, the balance between the community and the individual, and the balance between trust and control.
