Norway’s Breivik says former PM was his main target, via Al Jazeera
alexanderpf: The former PM Breivik wanted to “tie up and decapitate” is Gro Brundtland, which may sound familiar to many of you because of her role on the World Commission on Environment and Development (WCED), which formed the modern definition of the now ubiquitous term “sustainability.”
“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. It contains within it two key concepts:
- the concept of ‘needs’, in particular the essential needs of the world’s poor, to which overriding priority should be given; and
- the idea of limitations imposed by the state of technology and social organization on the environment’s ability to meet present and future needs.”
The Report of the ‘Brundtland Commission’, Our Common Future, was published by Oxford University Press in 1987.
