Utilitarianism addresses problems in a way that it will maximize the overall good. It supports the greatest happiness principle which states that actions are right if they tend to promote happiness and wrong if it promotes the opposite of happiness. This theory is not based on making the most money as it may appear at first, but utilitarianism has much more to offer to our society as it demonstrates and shows full awareness that sponsoring feelings or sentiments do matter. Sustainable development can be viewed in three perspectives; environmental, social, and economic welfare. From the ecological perspective; if we are to look for a better future for the coming generations, we have to consider the environment and its betterment for everyone not from the perspective of developed and developing countries.
The years 1975 and 1990 are especially useful for the investigation as they will display the main causes and the main effects that are related to the war. The causes and effects of the war are mainly political, socio-economic and religious. The main cause and spark of the Lebanese conflict was driven by political issues and complications within the government as well as the bordering countries’ complications. The Arab-Israeli conflict during 1970 to 1973 played a huge role in sparking the Lebanese conflict because the Israelis took control over the land which caused a huge influx of refugees to the surrounding countries, including Lebanon. Lebanon was home to more than 100,000 of the Muslim refugees and is still refuge to many to this day.

2. THEORETICAL PART 2.1 SUSTAINABILITY Sustainability means meeting the needs of today without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Sustainable Construction aims to apply this principle to the construction industry by providing ways of buildings that use less virgin material and less energy, cause less pollution and less waste but still provide the benefits that construction projects have brought us throughout history. In many countries - rich and poor - this is often because of a perception that sustainability is expensive to implement and ultimately a brake on development. Poor countries for their part usually lack the physical infrastructure, ideas and human capacity to integrate sustainability into their
To some extent, unlike previous international business strategy, fair trade furnished financial subsidy to poor people in developing countries, it simultaneously established stable working opportunities to those poor people to survive in the fierce global business environment by their own labor effort. The movement of fair trade is labeled as a strategy to pay special attention to impoverished areas in their external sales. It is doubt from the label
This interpretation has been used to describe ‘sustainable tourism’ as well, which is often viewed as a sub-set of sustainable development. This interpretation however, lacks consideration for social and ecological impacts, instead only focusing on economic changes. Nonetheless, because of the widespread adoption of this interpretation, it has become the basis of comparison among other definitions of sustainable development (Imran, Alam & Beaumont, 2014). Sustainable tourism is tourism that is implemented and maintained, in a way that allows its long-term presence without damage or change to the environment in which the place exists to a point where it will hinder the progress and stability of other operations by stakeholders (Wahab & Pigram, 1997). Sustainable tourism requires people to take a long-term approach in monitoring economic activities to determine the need for continued economic growth, and if that growth will impact a destination such that it is unable to provide for future visitors (Theobald, 2005).
All parts of our society, be it the government, business or individuals are encouraged to operate in more environmentally friendly ways, to aid sustainability for the world. This, we have to be clear on the significant role we play in delivering a sustainable world. It is such an eyesore to witness the sick environment that is happening around us, yet the society seems to be ignorant about it up until now. However, there are several methods that can be made in order to create an environmental friendly community in today’s society, namely, raise awareness, preserve the ecosystems and by practicing 3R. For a community to be environmentally friendly, we must begin with the first simple step, which is raising the awareness among our society regarding environmental issues.
However, it is claimed that it was first used by The Wall Street Journal in an article published by them back in 1999. Philanthropreneurs firmly believe in investing rather than waving off the check which makes them active donors with abundant resources who aim to achieve social changes that are both sustainable and scalable. They are the individuals who bring about a creative and an entrepreneurial approach to philanthropy. They are inclined towards alleviating suffering and brining a positive change in the world- by creative and innovative ways. They aim at providing permanent solutions to the societal problems for example, a philanthorprenuer will rather try to eradicate the problem of healthcare than direct his/her efforts towards purchasing food for the hungry and medicines for the sick.
Sustainable development, by definition, is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. As for sustainability in terms of sociology of the environment I will continue the pattern of definitions, to explain what many believe as the goal. An environmentally sustainable society is one that ensures the health and vitality of human life and culture for present and future generations. This society acts to stop the activities that serve to destroy human life and culture and to encourage those activities that serve to conserve what exists, restore what has been damaged and prevent any future harm. (S. Viederman, New York) The more society learns to sustain, the better.
Civic engagement encompasses a wide range of activities cutting across the social, political, economic, cultural and religious spheres. Despite the different forms and modalities civic engagement activities may take, their ultimate goal is to improve the collective well being of members of a community, region or nation, and not to promote a particular religious ideology or political party. Some forms of civic engagement may aim to create political change or to generate economic benefits - with the overarching goal of improving the community, rather than for personal gain. In other words, civic engagement does primarily aim at benefiting the individual who is civilly engaged, although the individual and his/her family may benefit directly or
