The sustainable development theory depends on many factors that can support it. These factors can be of importance to the current generation and future generation, Theoretically; the sustainable development is depending on the well of people to use the natural resources that are not infinite the proper use and keep it continuing for the future generation. The sustainable development theory is saying to protect the natural Earth from destruction as the results of the abusing the Global Earth in which humans are living on it and enjoying the resources that the Mother Earth is providing. Furthermore, the Earth’s natural resources are balanced with every elemental component of it, and if the earth is losing this balance, then the mother Earth will not be able to provide the products and services the humans are demanding from it. Many aspects of sustainable development that can be explained in our scenarios in this paper can we are presenting here. The significant findings in this paper are the balancing the human population of the world to support the reduction of degrading or damaging of the global environment; use of efficient energy; decreasing poverty, improve quality of life, supporting healthy people, support quality of education and support providing jobs to the youth to get equal opportunities. This will lead to eliminate unuseful ideologies and improve sustainability.
