Through the study and review of two specific aspects of San José de Moro’s social responsibility plan: 1. The Modular Museum Program as a heritage tourism tool, and 2. The Development of a Local Identity, it is the purpose of this paper to demonstrate that in order to achieve a sustainable preservation of the site, the local community must be treated as an equal stakeholder and decision-maker. Unfortunately, this has not been the case.

Introduction I am placed at Reed Elementary School in Kuna, Idaho, for my internship. I’ve been offered so many learning opportunities at this placement, and the population I’m working with, mostly young children, is one I never expected to serve. This agency’s goals and missions align with the social work values of service and empowerment through education. Reed Elementary School is one of the ten schools in the Kuna School District. Therefore, I will address the agency as the Kuna School District. For this paper, I will discuss the agency’s goals and mission, services, funding, personnel, and personal observations.
The summit at Rio de Janeiro was a wake up call for the metropolises. It was necessary to develop in such a way that it was not so invasive on the environment. According to the Brundtland Report: “in developing countries few municipal governments possess the necessary amount of energy, resources, and qualified staff to supply the rapidly increasing population with the services and utilities indispensable to a decent human life” (Gyorgy Kunszt, Sustainable Architecture, 6). It is because of such conditions that illegal constructions have taken place, in order to satisfy the needs of the rapidly increasing population. However, this does not mean that the constructions are adequate either for the environment or for a human being. After analyzing important documents such as the Brundtland Report, the summit at Rio de Janeiro became crucial in the development of the idea of sustainable architecture and development. The guidelines for these ideas were under the title of “Tasks for the 21st Century”. The bases for what are today’s sustainable architectural standards are located in this document. The achievements at the Rio de Janeiro Conference were crucial in order to begin changing the ideas that had been established and changing them into what would be considered the beginning of a new age in architecture. Sustainable architecture is one of the small steps mankind is taking in order to

This in turn required a common perception of the central approaches and concepts of the project. Starting point of the negotiation process was the adoption of the concept of “strong sustainability” (given in the project application). “Strong sustainability” refers to an approach in which natural capital (resources) is regarded as non-substitutable. Since natural resources are limited, they form the basic prerequisite for them (Döring, 2004). But the question remains: How to deal with the other dimensions of sustainability? And where to locate culture?

It promotes the local economy and yields access to valuable expertise. Socially, the organization can work in each community to address with local aspirations and give support to associations that are working toward public good. With regards to the environment, each task is to ensure as often as possible its business activity takes into account the need to protect and enhance local eco-systems. For example, the multi-national organization BPTT, achieve this aspect, sustainable development in the CSR policy by being involved in a range of activities in Trinidad and Tobago, from involvement at the Galeota Point’s Nature Reserve, to making a US$10 million dollar investment in the University of Trinidad and Tobago and sponsoring cultural activities and hopes it creates a profitable relationship between consumers and the organization.Note as well that in the areas of TT which they work, such as Mayaro, BPTT offers scholarships to youth to encourage their pursuit of higher education.

Supply Business Chains Operations Introduction As is known from the surroundings we live, there are an increasing number of factories and manufacturing industries all around the world, which facilitate our daily life on one hand and pollute the environment around us on the other. Countries, especially some industrialized ones cannot develop their economy at the cost of making the surroundings contaminated. Many a company, such as Black and Decker producing such products as power tools, kitchen appliances as well as lawn and garden equipment, pursues a policy of sustainable development or ecological sustainability. It refers to the endurance of systems and processes in ecology, covering four interconnected domains: ecology, economics, politics and culture. J Klewitz, EG Hansen (2014) said, “Sustainability-oriented innovation (SOIs) is the integration of ecological and social aspects into products, processes, and organizational structures.”

Sustainable Development The concept of sustainable development regards the use of human, physical, and financial resources in a manner that is effectively directed only to industrial, commercial and financial areas, but also the infrastructure, education, health, tourism, and so on. Because the development is in the interest not only of the public but also the private sector, it takes account of social and environmental components of development (Therivel & Paridario, 2013).
