Environmental sustainability involves making decisions and taking action that are in the interests of protecting the natural world, with particular emphasis on preserving the capability of the environment to support human life. The notion of ecological footprint has played an important role in environmental education and in the development of awareness. An ecosystem approach to management recognizes the interrelated nature of air, land, water and living organisms. Ecosystem management develops effective partnerships that define units of management by using natural boundaries, such as watersheds, instead of geopolitical boundaries and departmental divisions. This approach considers the natural environment, society and the economy, and incorporates the broader concepts of sustainability. The paper highlighted the needs and it condition of environment sustainability in this contemporary period. Government, NGOs are taking vital role in this but need to create the environment awareness among various communities.
