II VISION Respecting Human Rights Maintaining Cultural Sustainability "Social maintainability" is another term, and one not effectively characterized. The word culture implies numerous things to numerous individuals. We utilize it in the broadest sense to signify \'our qualities and goals, conventions and shared recollections, the ways we create, get and transmit these, and the lifestyles these procedures deliver\'. Maintainability can be characterized as : "Addressing the necessities of the present without bargaining the requirements of future eras". Assembled these thoughts and we\'ll have social manageability – "creating, restoring and keeping up human societies that make constructive, continuing associations with different people groups and the common world". In the expressions of Nelson Mandela , "Like truth, culture and imagination are enduring."
