  32. 40. Sustainability <ul><li>Sustainability is the ability of our city-region to continue its activities and maintain its health and resilience for the long-term . </li></ul><ul><li>Sustainable development is ‘ development that meets the needs of present generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs' [ 1] . </li></ul><ul><li>The City of Geraldton-Greenough recognises that city-region’s development is currently compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs , and have defined a vision for change. </li></ul><ul><li>The City is committed to the vision of a “delightfully diverse, safe, healthy and just city-region, with clean air, water, soil and power – economically, equitably, ecologically and elegantly enjoyed” [ 2] . </li></ul>
  33. 41. Five Dimensions
  34. 42. <ul><li>ENVIRONMENTAL systems and services from our ecological and built assets are not systematically degraded through over-extraction, pollution or physically degradation such that we can have a safe and healthy… </li></ul><ul><li>SOCIETY where services are resilient to change and able to meet fundamental human needs. Increasing our effectiveness at meeting those needs within environmental constraints requires effective and transparent…. </li></ul><ul><li>GOVERNANCE processes and institutions. Our governance must be participatory, inclusive and empower local decision-making and regional autonomy. Regional autonomy will provide the conditions for local… </li></ul><ul><li>ECONOMIC development using our assets to support diverse and growing employment opportunities. Attending to these first four dimensions will support an evolving… </li></ul><ul><li>CULTURE reflecting community values and aspirations for our human non-material needs such as identity, lifestyle, creativity, and freedom. </li></ul>

  41. 51. <ul><li>The number one barrier to bringing about sustainability is leadership – from all of us in every way, to </li></ul><ul><li>‘ show the way by going in advance ‘ </li></ul>
  42. 52. Our Actions can ripple out…
  43. 54. <ul><ul><li>There is a link between ‘ inner ’ (personal & cultural development, and organisational values) and ‘ outer ’ (organisational, business, market, sustainable) developmen t; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Real innovation and transformation, and the biggest leverage points for integrating sustainability, occur in the ‘ interior ’: individual's mindsets and values, and organisation’s cultures; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Inter-subjective, dialogic processes, like coaching , are the most powerful and effective way to accelerate leadership development and adoption of new values and culture. These methods foster innovation and accelerate ‘outer’ development of sustainable organisations and society. </li></ul></ul>
