Following are the reasons why environmental education important for sustainable development:

  1. Protect Technological Resources: The people coming into this world are coming into an increasingly technological age, where more people than ever are relying on technology for nearly every aspect of their lives, so we need to protect the technological resources.
  2. Provide Basic Human Needs: A rising population will also make use of the bare essentials of life such as food, water, and shelter. The provision of these essentials is based almost entirely around having an infrastructure that can sustain them for the long-term.
  3. For Agricultural Necessity: Sustainable agricultural practices like crop rotation and effective seeding practices can help to promote high yields while protecting the integrity of the soil as it produces food for larger amounts of people
  4. Accommodate City Development: If cities use sustainable development practices, they can conceivably make way for new housing and business developments indefinitely.
  5. Control Climate Change: Climate change is another issue that can be at least partially remedied through sustainable development As the population rises, more people will be requiring more energy and will be putting an even greater strain on the world climate.
  6. Provide Financial Stability: As the population rises, more people will be requiring more energy and will be putting an even greater strain on the world climate.
  7. Sustain Biodiversity: Biodiversity suffers through overconsumption and unsustainable development practices. Beyond the basic ethical quandary presented by this fact, there is the further concern that these species are a part of a food web that humans rely on.
