Since the 1992 Earth Summit, the policymakers of the world have started to insert the ideals and actions of sustainable development at a local, national, regional, and international level. This study is in three parts. The first component is the definition, history, and present state of sustainable development. The second focus is the implementation of these programs at local societies throughout the world through local Agenda 21 programs of action. Lastly, a case study will be presented demonstrating a crucial element of sustainable development, which is educating youth and preparing them for action for advancing sustainable development in the 21st century.
