You will prepare and submit a term paper on Sustainability as an Essential Aspect of Contemporary Engineering Practice. Your paper should be a minimum of 1750 words in length. The evaluation of various means of incorporating both applied and theoretical perspectives on the issue of sustainability within given engineering contexts. Because sustainability and ethics do overlap, abate not coinciding, it is essential to incorporate both aspects in any given form of an engineering project. this is optimally achieved by way of clear recognition of the existing points of linkage. which essentially involve aspects such as environmental preservation and sustenance. social sustainability, ethnic reasoning, and economic rationality.
Sustainability, as a normative concept, is considered a positive aspect of human development, essential in ensuring peaceful co-existence and harmony between human beings and nature. As a positive aspect, it is essential as a guiding principle for both individual and social influences. Thus, the recognition and analysis of ethical meaning(s), within the concept of sustainability, is essential to be able to comprehensively generate adequate and encompassing analyses and subsequent solutions requisite to sustainability issues. In dealing with sustainability, a number of questions are raised, chief amongst them being: – how one ought to live (sustainably) within the three-fold relationship present i.e. with nature, other contemporaries, and future generations (Sustainability Ethics, 2014).
In this regard, the focus should be on what ways of living and acting, would be adequately respectable to the rights of existing temporaries, future generations, and fundamentally so, Mother Nature. In terms of such contexts, the answer would lay in what actions we take, as well as individual and group-entity responsibilities (Abbas et al, 2008:171). A relationship is essential in linking the norm of sustainability and other prevailing social contexts i.e. religious, economic, political, and cultural.
