    ment with the ‘Egg of Sustainability’, originally designed in by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, IUCN (cf. Guijt & Moiseev ). The Egg of Sustainability illus-trates the relationship between people and ecosystem as one circle inside another, like the yolk of an egg. In ecology, sustainability (from sustain and ability) is the property of biological systems to remain diverse and productive indefinitely. Long-lived and healthy wetlands and forests are examples of sustainable biological systems. In more general terms, sustainability is the endurance of systems and processes.
