Many people and groups have their own definition of sustainability. My personal favorite comes from the Natural Step framework, which provides four conditions that must be met to be sustainable. It was developed by a group of scientists in the 80's and 90's and is used as an end goal - it allows groups to envision what they would look like if they were fully sustainable and then develop steps to move in that direction.
I recommend that anyone curious about how to define sustainability learn a little more about the Natural Step framework. A good starting point is naturalstep.org/the-system-conditions.
