Sustainability is now a part of everyday life. The word is everywhere, but what does it mean and how can educators go about educating sustainable practitioners of veterinary nursing and of life. It is first important to understand what sustainability is, how everything is cyclical and how big an impact prople are really having and then look at how individuals and small groups of students can collectively make a big difference. Is plastic really worse than paper, how can people make good choices, what are the other factors that need to be considered? It is not just the environment that is affected, but economics, society and cultures too. Educators must walk to talk and actively show that sustainability is important and everyone can make a difference.
