STRATEGIC AREAS AND GOALS
Environmentally sustainable society: Slovenia is fulfilling its responsibilities for a global environmental balance, especially in the fields of climate and biodiversity.
Socially just society: Slovenia is actively involved in solving local and global problems, striving for a society of sustained prosperity for all (a society defined by indicators more relevant and comprehensive than GDP, by equitable relations, responsibility and provision of equal opportunities for all, without enrichment on account of exploitation).
Locally self-subsistent society: Slovenia’s basic needs by 2030 are covered by local resources (energy, food, water and other resources) within the limits of their carrying capacity.
Open society: Slovenia has established a participatory democracy. To ensure the decisions are in the public interest, the decision-making processes are open and based on the inclusion of civil society. Non-governmental sector is equal to the public and private sectors.
Why sustainable development?
Umanotera understands sustainable development as a dynamic balance between man and nature, which allows social justice and intergenerational solidarity. Sustainable development also means that people should exploit the unlimited capability of their minds instead of exploiting limited natural resources. Only in this way will we be able to leave our environment and resources to future generations in the best possible condition.
