The need to create a sustainable culture arises because today's unequal endeavors are insufficient for the tasks presented in the world, as several aspects, such as sustainable communities, yield in natural resources, energy, agriculture, economies, and a number of other dimensions, have to be satisfied. Aside from the welfare of human beings, that of all other creatures also has to be accounted for. There seems to be no communication and coordination between those working on individual tasks and aspects, and none are able to integrate all efforts to restore cultural life on the whole, since people often fail to look at the “big picture.” It is important to note though that sustainable efforts do not entail an end in themselves, and that it is important to consider factors that contribute to longevity.
