Sustainable Development

Sustainable Development - Definition

"Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
United Nations http://www.un.org/esa/sustdev/csd/review.htm


"We believe sustainable development begins at home and is supported by effective domestic policies, and international partnerships. Self-governing people prepared to participate in an open world marketplace are the very foundation of sustainable development."
US State Department, http://www.state.gov/g/oes/sus/


"We pledge to transmit this city not only not less, but far greater and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us." Oath written by Pericles. From 594 to 404 B.C., literature, science, philosophy, and the arts flourished in Athens. The birthplace of democracy had its golden age during the rule of statesman Pericles (c. 495-429 B.C.), who made sweeping political reforms and actively supported the arts. Pericles is credited with the Athenian oath of fealty.

HydroInfra Technologies creates Hydro Nano Gas that Makes any fossil fuel climate neutral.

Hello

You may already be aware of Hydro Nano Gas (HNG) technology and what it can do to eliminate air pollution from power plants, shipping and other industries.

Did you know that HNG is also being used to clean up the seas.

Your readers need to know about this and the joint venture projects HIT is creating around the world with industry and governments.

Please see the latest project news on the HIT web site for more info.
