The concept of sustainable development is conceived as a balance of sustainable economic growth and ecological regeneration. For the well-being of societies, technological innovation must contribute to developing a new model of sustainable social, economic, and environmental growth to make the system more sustainable. The challenge for any nation is continuing its economic growth and distributing welfare while ensuring environmental sustainability.
Sustainable development requires institutional and values changes and cultural adjustments. Sustainable development must be incorporated into mainstream policies to promote national and international cooperation. In this context, sustainable development enables technology transfer and increased well-being.
