ABSTRACT
An interview with American authors Wes Jackson and Wendell Berry is presented. Both authors agree that sustainability should be placed in a particular context for it to have a value and mean something. When asked about genuine sustainability, Berry explains that it is found in nature's own dynamic relative permanence while Jackson elaborates on its time-dependency. The two authors comment on a quote from the Land Institute's website.
