Is sustainable development a luxury we cannot afford? Desmond Tutu debates this question in a new video from The Elders.
He commented: "The great challenges we all face are very clear: poverty eating away at our social fabric; our dwindling ecosystems; the well-documented threat of climate change...
"And yet so many of our leaders tend to put these challenges right at the bottom of their agendas."
Then the debate is opened up to the wider community. Read responses from Youngers in Sweden, Brazil, China and Nigeria over at The Elders website.
