EARTH University Graduation and Principles of Sustainability

In major news, EARTH University's class of 2009, 98 new agents for change, is graduating today at 11:00AM Eastern standard time. You can tune in to view a live video broadcast of the commencement ceremony here. Congratulations to the Class of 2009; we are very proud of all of you!

In other news, George Dyre recently discussed the principles of sustainability and strategies for development on his Strategies for Sustainability blog. He has an interesting outlook on sustainability that I believe is worth checking out.

Also, check out a new sustainble agriculture platform, proposed by IFAP, who discusses the importance of committing to create "a global agricultural plan with clear national targets that [will] give more of the resources to agriculture and prioritization of the sector in national policies with the cooperation of farmers and important stakeholders".

During her interview, which is posted below, Nora Ourabah Haddad--senior policy officer at the IFAP and supporter of Farmers First--made a very profound statement about sustainable agriculture, "Farmers do develop sustainable agriculture practices daily, but they have to be supported to do that." I absolutely believe that this is important to remember when considering sustainability. In order to improve the value of sustainable agriculture and cultivate farms globally with innovative practices, we must support our farmers wholeheartedly.
